Suburban Propane is pleased to celebrate Earth Day with an initiative to plant more than 180 trees at its Customer Service Centers located around the nation, as well as at its headquarters' location in Whippany, New Jersey.
The tree planting initiative is part of the Company's Go Green with Suburban Propane corporate pillar, which focuses on the company's commitment to advocating for the clean-burning attributes of propane in the transition to a sustainable energy future, and to investing in innovative solutions to pave the way to zero-carbon emissions.
On April 12th, Suburban Propane President and CEO, Michael Stivala, planted a blue spruce tree at the company's Whippany, NJ headquarters, symbolically launching the initiative across the nation with simultaneous tree plantings at Customer Service Centers in Grass Valley, CA; Horseheads, NY; Fenton, MI; Tallahassee, FL; and a cactus planting at Oberon Fuels in Brawley, CA. This week, more than 180 tree seed kits were sent to each of the Company's Customer Service Centers where employees will break ground and plant a tree.
Also in April, Suburban Propane donated a sizable monetary donation to the City of Santa Rosa, California to help with its reforestation efforts, committing to plant new trees in the downtown area to replace existing dead trees in the aftermath of the devastating wildfires from last year.
"We are very excited to celebrate Earth Day with our tree planting initiative across our 41-state footprint. This is well aligned with our 'Go Green with Suburban Propane' efforts; including our reforestation efforts in Santa Rosa, as well as renewing our contract to purchase and supply more than one-million gallons of renewable propane in the state of California. These efforts contribute to our goals of reducing our nation's carbon footprint, but also in achieving aggressive targets to lower greenhouse gas emissions," said Nandini Sankara, Spokesperson, Suburban Propane.
