We’re celebrating by supporting the planting of 1,500 trees!
Remember that time we supported the planting of 500 trees in the Santa Fe National Forest to celebrate New Mexico’s Arbor Day? Well, we’re doing it a little bigger as it’s national Arbor Day today! We’re happy to announce that we’ve supported the planting of 1,000 trees in Texas as part of the Arbor Day Foundation ’s Lost Pines Tree Recovery Campaign.
On September 4, 2011, three wildfires merged into one called the Bastrop County Complex Fire. This caused serious damage, as the fire was officially declared extinguished on October 29th causing damage to 32,400 acres of the Lost Pines Forest ecosystem. As it is our goal to continue to pull carbon dioxide and harmful emissions out of the atmosphere, and positively impact the environments of Lubbock, Albuquerque, and other neighboring cities, we are proud to support this project.
Did you know that according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, one acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and puts our four tons of oxygen? That’s enough to meet the annual needs of 18 people!
It’s ONLY possible because of you. Our friends, families, co-workers, and everyone in between, who drive and choose to fill up at ALON 7-Eleven gas stations with Strive Fuel. When you choose to pump Strive Fuel, you’re choosing to make a positive impact on your community’s environment, and in this case, plant trees to revive and restore a park that was seriously damaged.

Join us in supporting our partner, Arbor Day Foundation, as we wish them a happy Arbor Day!
