Strive Fuel In Action

We mean it when we say, you can feel good about your fuel.

Over the past couple of weeks, volunteers and employees from ALON 7-Eleven joined forces with some of our favorite partners to make a difference in their communities and prove that when you choose Strive Fuel, you are planting trees.

In Albuquerque, ALON 7-Eleven with Strive spent a warm summer morning at Van Buren Middle School where ALON 7-Eleven employees and families worked to expand the school’s garden to continue the school’s beautification efforts and to bring more fresh foods to the hardworking students. In addition to providing food, the garden provides a space for students to learn and grow outside.

The rockstar volunteers got down and dirty as they worked hard amending soil, building new planting beds, planting fruit trees, and harvesting foods in order to create a long-lasting impact on the school’s environment and to fill a need for the students at Van Buren. Projects like this are a great way to give back to the community as the food that grows is provided to the families nearby the school.

Meanwhile, in Lubbock, ALON 7-Eleven employees and their families joined forces with Keep Lubbock Beautiful and the Lubbock Parks and Rec department to plant 20 trees in the popular McKenzie Park. The group worked tirelessly at digging large holes and even needed a bulldozers help to make sure the trees were being properly planted. These trees will have a lasting impact in McKenzie Park as they will continue to grow for years to come.

It’s incredible to see all of the progress being made in each community just because people like you are choosing to pump Strive Fuel!

For every gallon of Strive Fuel gasoline at any ALON 7-Eleven in Albuquerque, Odessa, Midland, and Lubbock at no additional cost, each gas station is investing in local greenscape, reforestation, wildlife protection, and renewable energy projects that not only reduce each customer’s car emissions, but also improves each local community.

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!
