Earth Day, Every Day

Earth Day is observed on April 22nd every year. It is a day to show support to protect our environment. To date, it is recognized in over 192 countries and the goal is to promote awareness, get involved in community projects, or more personally, do something to help the environment. For example, planting new trees, recycling more materials, or installing solar panels for your home.

Propane was a “green” fuel before going green was a movement. Propane is an approved, clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act as well as the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. It contributes  to the idea behind Earth Day, every day.

Propane assists many aspects of residential, commercial, fleets and  agricultural areas:

  • More than 14 million families use propane to fuel their furnaces, water heaters, air conditioners, outdoor grills, fire places, dryers and range tops.
  • Many choose this clean-burning fuel, autogas, for bus, taxi, delivery and other fleets to minimize air pollution in metropolitan areas.
  • Propane is used on more than 660,000 farms for irrigation pumps, grain dryers, standby generators and other farm equipment. It is an essential fuel for crop drying, flame cultivation, fruit ripening, space and water heating and food refrigeration.
  • Landscaping lawn equipment accounts for 10% of the pollution today. By switching from gasoline to propane can cut emissions by 70% to 80%.

Any day is a great day to start becoming more aware of our environment and how we can all contribute to making it cleaner and greener. Using propane lets you be a part of Earth Day, every day!
