Another way to give to Alabama Environmental Council: Now through December 31, if you make a donation through your paypal account, 101% will go to the cause. There are no credit card or other fees taken, and Paypal is paying for the extra 1%. This is a great way to maximize your giving and get your tax-deductible donation before the end of the year.
The AEC needs money for Recycal to expand its hours and materials as well as to get some much needed equipment for the operations. Many people don't realize that commodity prices are low and the materials collected do not pay for the center to be open.
Also the AEC provides recycling to area schools, education, and actively promotes solar and other renewable energy options in Alabama.
The AEC does not currently get any funding from the City of Birmingham for its work here. Please help out with what you can.
