Do you love recycling? Alabama’s natural wonders? If the answer is a resounding YES, join the Alabama Environmental Council (AEC) for their 22nd Annual Green Tie Affair this Friday, April 20, 6-10pm at Sloss Furnaces.
One of the state’s oldest conservation organizations, the Birmingham based AEC operates the largest nonprofit recycling center in the Alabama. Along with recycling, the AEC helped create the Sipsey Wilderness in the Bankhead National Forest and Little River Canyon National Preserve, Alabama’s first National Park unit dedicated to a natural area.
Here is a video about the group’s half century of accomplishments.
A can’t miss event, the Green Tie Affair at Sloss Furnaces will be filled with live music by Tragic City, as well as The Oxymorons.
Food and drinks will be provided by El Barrio, Brick & Tin, Rojo, Tropicaleo, The Essential, Silvertron & Niki’s Downtown, International Wines & Craft Beers, Tito’s Vodka, Good People Brewing and Cahaba Brewing.
Along with an epic silent and live auction, if you wear your some “green” you will have a chance to win additional prizes.
Sponsors for the event include, EBSCO Industries, Mercedes-Benz, CMC Commercial Metals, Birmingham Mountain Radio, Blythe Events, Magic City Street Team and TransAmerica.
