Corporate Responsibility & Environmental Sustainability

The right way for the planet


Count the ways to be green

Sustainable living starts with understanding your lifestyle and its effects on the environment. You release one metric ton of CO2 into the atmosphere for*:

  • Every 103 gallons of gasoline you spend. For cars that get 25 miles to the gallon, that's a little more than 2,500 miles — equal to about two months of driving for many Americans.

  • Every month you power the average American home for heating, cooling, cooking, electricity and more.

  • Every 40 barbecue propane canisters you use.
