Holcim US Inc announced that employees, friends and family from its Theodore plant located in Theodore, Alabama will join forces and participate for the thirteenth consecutive year in the 23rd Annual Alabama Coastal Cleanup event. The event is being held on Saturday, September 18, 2010.
"As a company, we are proud of what we do to limit our impact on the environment," said Quentin McGahey, plant manager of the Theodore plant. "As employees, we are also committed to doing our part in maintaining a healthy environment and giving back to the community we live in."
"Last year we had 71 volunteers assisting at the event and collected 3,245 pounds of trash," said Travis Osborne, the plant’s environmental manager and one of the event’s zone captains. "This year, we are hoping to see the number of volunteers increase."
The Coastal Cleanup event is a worldwide annual event in which thousands of people descend on beaches, lakes and streams throughout the world to clean trash and debris from the water.
