We started 2017 with some very exciting projects! Learn more about what we did and how you can get involved.

To begin the new year, we kicked off our partnership with  Keep Big Spring Beautiful  with our first project! For this tree planting, five Red Oak trees were planted at the Comanche Trail Municipal Golf Course.  The golf course was affected by the drought and lost several trees.  We are very excited to play a small part in bringing some life back to the area.

Thursday, January 12th was the perfect weather to get these trees planted!  They were each 35 gallon trees and will provide the golf course with some much needed shade.

Thank you to all the volunteers that came out and helped with this project! If you have any ideas for any future projects in your community please email us  info@greenprintcorp.com . If you are interested in volunteering in future projects, you can click  here .

Our next big event of 2017, was the introduction of Wichita Falls to the Strive Fuel family.  We launched Strive in Wichita Falls on January 18th! The  Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce   came out for the launch, as well as Mayor Santellana who pumped the first gallon of Strive Fuel in Wichita Falls!  Channel 6 also covered the launch  here .  We presented a ceremonial check to the Arbor Day Foundation that will be used to plant trees around Texas National Forests. We are so excited to have this program in the city of Wichita Falls and are excited to make an impact in this community.

Wichita Falls will now join Big Spring, Midland/Odessa, Lubbock, and Albuquerque on the list of Alon 7-Eleven stores that have partnered with Strive Fuel. To see if there is a Strive location near you, check  here . Check back soon so we can tell you what else we’re up to this year! It’s going to be a great one!

With Easter right around the corner, you might not have time to go out and buy your Easter egg dying kit. But don’t worry! There are several eco-friendly recipes using things you already have around the house:

1.  Classic Home Made Dye. Your classic homemade dye is made with vinegar, water, and food coloring.

 -  First boil your eggs. (For egg dying purposes it is best to use white eggs, simply because the brown egg will not hold the color as well. Save your brown eggs for eating)
 -  Once eggs are boiled, allow them time to cool.
 -  Boil a pot of water. Once boiling, separate into glass cups.
 -  Add 1 tbsp. and food-coloring to each glass.
 -  Let them sit until color has set in.
 -  To decorate these eggs, use things you have around the house! Circle sticker, bunny stickers, masking or electrical tape.
 -  Get creative! With the stickers and tape, you can create different layers of colors.

2.  The Natural Route. There are several different things you can use to create natural dye each recipe is per cup of water:

Last week, STRIVE® Fuel with Keep Odessa Beautiful supported the addition of 30 shade trees to Salinas Park and Woodson Park.  As a popular and frequently visited parks in Odessa, this area was in desperate need of some trees. ALON 7-Eleven volunteers and their families worked with Keep Odessa Beautiful and the parks department to plant various types of trees including Live Oaks and Grow Bag Pines for families to enjoy!

1.     Get your green clothes from a thrift store. Shopping from a thrift store can help you go green because you will be keeping those clothes out of a landfill. Not only will you keep them out of the landfill, but you will also save emissions from production and distribution. The 90s style is once again on trend, so find your clothes for a bargain!

2.     Shop at your local Farmer’s Market for fun green food. St. Patrick’s Day is a great way to try out new recipes. Shop for the ingredients to your fun, green foods at your local Farmer’s Market. Farmer’s markets are sustainable and will keep your money in the local economy.

3.     Try to use old decorations. If you are a saver, you will likely already have old St. Patrick’s Day decorations. If you are not a saver now is the year to start! Find old things around the house you can reuse.

4.     Get crafty with nature. This holiday is the perfect holiday to incorporate nature. The theme is all green. Go outside and find some greenery that can double as decorations for this fun day.
