Thanks to the rise in the price of aluminum & YOUR support & continued practice of collecting cans on Every American Airlines flight.
Great Job AA Flight Attendants - THANK YOU!
QUESTIONS or COMMENTS are welcome at RECYCLING@WINGSFOUNDATION.COM
Onboard recycling of used aluminum cans first started in 1989 (by one SJC AA Flight Attendant Heather Bell) & was maintained at the grass roots level for more than 10 years. It was then appointed to the trust & administration of The Wings Foundation
We Rely on YOU!
Renewed awareness of the Wings Recycling Program has continued to increase as individuals focus on ways to protect the environment & conserve energy. Miami based flight attendant Robert Amaya & Washington, DC based flight attendant Jennifer Wilson have been tireless in their efforts to increase interest in the program. The funds raised go directly to the benefit of the Flight Attendant Disaster Relief Fund (FADRF). American Airlines DOES NOT benefit from the financial proceeds raised by the recycling program, however we are grateful for the full support & cooporation of American Airlines Flight Service & the aircraft catering companies "LSG Sky Chef's" & "Gate Gourmet".
We Recycle Corks Too
Wings now has the support of AA Flight Service as we encourage Flight Attendants to collect corks for recycling through the Wings Foundation cork recycling program. Collected corks can be dropped into the cork collection boxes in Flight Service Operations areas at select bases.
