How We Kicked Off 2017

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 . 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!

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!
