What Does This Mean?

For the second year in a row, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta has reinforced it's commitment to creating a positive impact on Albuquerque's environment. To reduce it’s carbon footprint, the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta teamed up with ALON 7-Eleven with Strive Fuel to offset emissions from ALL hot air balloon flights during the 7 day event. In addition to negating nearly 100k gallons of propane, a trees will be planted in the Santa Fe National Forest on behalf of each 550 hot air balloons participating in the event. Between the two years combined that means over 200k gallons of propane emissions have been neutralized and over 1,000 trees have been planted in the Santa Fe National Forest!
