Celebrate Earth Day with the clean energy of propane!
Earth Day is an annual event recognized each April 22. First celebrated in 1970 in the United States, Earth Day events are held today in nearly 200 countries around the world. What was created as a day to honor the Earth and recognize the concept of peace has evolved into an international event that draws attention to, among other things, clean energy.
And that, dear friends, is where propane comes into the picture.
Earth Day is something we choose to celebrate here at Ferrellgas, and for good reason. That’s because we know each of the hundreds of millions of gallons of propane we deliver each year to homes, businesses, and farms across the country help do their part to protect Mother Earth.
For example, did you know that propane was identified as an approved clean alternative fuel under the Clean Air Act of 1990? That’s because propane emits fewer greenhouse gases, carbon monoxide, and particulate emissions than conventional energy sources in many applications. Propane is also nontoxic, meaning it does not contaminate water and soil. Because propane is stored in a sealed system, it isn’t spilled during the refueling process the way conventional fuels often are.
Propane is also the world’s third most common transportation fuel behind gasoline and diesel, and is considered an alternative fuel under the Energy Policy Act of 1992. Many of our nation’s most progressive private, public, and school district fleets are saving money (and doing their part to help save the environment) with clean-burning propane autogas.
On this Earth Day, we wish to thank you for choosing Ferrellgas and for the important role you play in making the air everyone breathes a little bit cleaner.
