BATO receives environmental award
Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations LLC (BATO) has won the Governor's Environmental Stewardship Award from the State of Tennessee.
The award specifically recognized BATO's Warren County, Tenn., plant, which operates a state-of-the-art science classroom via the Bridgestone Environmental Education Classroom and Habitat program.
"Instruction (at the facility) takes place on outdoor nature trails," as well as in a classroom setting, say BATO officials. Students learn about wildlife, recycling and other subjects.
