ATLANTA, April 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In partnership with GreenPrint, and the Arbor Day Foundation, SpeedyQ Markets have partnered to offer Drive™ - a reduced emissions program dedicated to offsetting tailpipe emissions while giving back to the East Michigan community. The sustainability program is set to launch in June 2018 at all SpeedyQ locations.
Residents and visitors in the thumb of Michigan will be able to reduce their carbon footprint, plant trees, and lessen their impact on the environment by refueling at any SpeedyQ locations. The program will reduce consumers' tailpipe emissions on all grades at the pump through certified carbon investment projects such as tree plantings, renewable energy development, and more. Unlike other alternative fuel products or programs, GreenPrint's program requires no new hardware or software, and no new tanks or equipment.
"We pride ourselves on being active members of the community as all SpeedyQ Market locations are locally owned and operated so we're focused on our communities and how best to support and give back to them," said Kyle Lawrence, president of SpeedyQ Markets "It's important we continue to continue to look for ways to partner with our guests and communities to help and 'Drive' allows us to do that."
In addition to the tailpipe emission offsets, SpeedyQ, through the Drive™ program will plant 5,000 trees in Michigan with the Arbor Day Foundation. The organizations will work together to plant trees and participate in volunteer and education projects in the East Michigan community.
