Suburban Propane Celebrates Earth Month 2024

Throughout April’s Earth Month, Suburban Propane celebrated its commitment to environmental stewardship with volunteering events held in each of the company’s regions across the nation. For the last 4 years, we have aided in the cleanup of various natural spaces, including beaches, parks, streets, and more.

Here’s how Suburban Propane and our employees commemorated Earth Month for 2024.
