WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., April 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In Celebration of Earth Month, Green Earth Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: GETG), a leading US manufacturer and marketer of "green" environmentally safer consumer packaged goods and products, announced today a partnership with Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, the multi-platinum selling artist, actor, record label executive, entrepreneur and philanthropist. Ludacris is widely known as a passionate automotive enthusiast and a supporter of environmentally friendly brands and products, making the alignment a perfect fit. Green Earth Technologies will donate money and products to The Ludacris Foundation to reinforce among urban youth that every day can be Earth Day, and Ludacris will support the partnership via social media.
In addition to being an award-winning music artist and actor in Academy Award winning films such as "Crash," Chris Bridges, known to millions as "Ludacris," is the President and Founder of The Ludacris Foundation, a non-profit Atlanta-based organization that uses music and the arts to connect with urban youth. The foundation has received numerous awards, provided over 30 grassroots non-profit organizations with grants, and has positively impacted millions of lives with their generosity. Ludacris' most recent project is a role in the film "Fast Five," to be released nationwide this Friday, April 29, continuing his alignment with the hit car racing franchise. In 2008, Ludacris co-hosted Planet Green's television series "Battleground Earth" with rocker Tommy Lee as they set out on a journey across the country to go head-to-head in a series of eco-challenges to reduce their carbon footprint through "green" missions.
"As an entrepreneur and a supporter of all things green, I believe in Green Earth Technologies' brand, products and message that every consumer can make simple changes to be green without sacrificing quality or performance," said Ludacris. "I also love my cars and now can feel good about driving green, running on high performance G-OIL motor oil."
Green Earth Technologies recently launched a campaign to "Change Your Oil, Change the World!", encouraging consumers to switch from their current petrochemical motor oil brand to G-OIL®, the world's first and only American Petroleum Institute (API) Service SM Certified 5W-30 Bio-based Full Synthetic Motor Oil, grown and made in the U.S.A. With oil prices at their height and consumers looking for sustainable high performance green solutions, G-OIL, a blend of nature's American grown base oils, makes it possible to reduce dependency on foreign oil and off-shore drilling. G-OIL is not a re-refined or a recycled oil, but a bio-based FULL SYNTHETIC motor oil that provides superior performance and protection during the maximum oil change intervals recommended by vehicle manufacturers
"We are thrilled to partner with Ludacris who is an influential role model to millions of fans and young beneficiaries of The Ludacris Foundation," said Jeffrey Loch, President of Green Earth Technologies. "Our aim is to educate the masses about how they can make their lives and cars greener today."
The average consumer changes their oil 2-3 times per year. Green Earth Technologies API certified G-OIL is now available for sale at Walmart. For a complete listing of participating retail locations, visit www.getG.com.
