The Open Space and Tree New Mexico team as we finalized planning of this project.

Strive Fuel is happy to announce our first tree planting taking place Saturday, September 19th along the Bosque at the Woodward Nursery in Candelaria Farms with Tree New Mexico, Open Space and ALON 7-Eleven. Volunteers will be planting an ecosystem of trees and shrubs in order to preserve the area, and support our efforts in offsetting tailpipe emissions and greenhouse gasses that are a direct result of gas purchases at the ALON 7-Eleven stations. During the planting, we’ll plant our 1,000th tree in New Mexico! If you’re not familiar with Strive Fuel, check out how it works  here .

We’re also going to present the winners of the #FreeStriveFuel contest with their awards! Our grand prize winner will receive $1,500 in free gas. Don’t worry… We’ll be hosting another contest soon, so you’ll have plenty of other chances to win. You’ll find new contests on our Facebook page, and lots of other updates like our latest projects, and more. Be sure to  like our page !

Albuquerque is a beautiful place, and we intend to do our part in keeping it that way. Thanks for your support! If you’re interested in volunteering for our next project or have questions about this project, fill out our  form  and we’ll get in touch with you.

Eat organic.

This includes your turkey... try to source a turkey locally and from a more humanely raised setting.  Going the organic route will cut down on the chemicals used to grow your produce.

Use your local Farmer’s Market.

Figure out what vegetables are in season and get creative.  Most Thanksgiving seasonal vegetables will be in season apart from only a few.  This will cut down on the gas, CO2 emissions and transportation it takes to ship seasonal food around the world.

Our trees have outgrown our planters! So, we decided to donate them to organizations around each market to give back to our local communities. Each of these organizations were in need of trees, and because our trees are native to each market, they fit the bill perfectly!

1. Reuse Reuse Reuse!
Throughout the year, keep an eye out for things that could replace decorations you have bought in the past. Old bed sheets can turn into ghosts. Styrofoam can easily be cut into whatever shape you like!

2. Make your own costume.
Keep around old clothing that could be turned into a costume. For example, old t-shirts, black shorts, any neutral clothing that can easily be painted or dyed. Shop at thrift stores! Thrift stores can hold treasures that can complete your Halloween costume. Get the kids involved with their own costumes. Let their imagination take the lead.

If the costume has been worn and you see no further use for it, don’t throw it away. Take the costume to a local shelter, thrift-store, or daycare. Better yet talk to your friends and neighbors about hosting a costume swap for the next year!
