Subaru of America’s Zero Landfill Initiative

Subaru has proven to be committed to our environment. Subaru of America had the first zero landfill automotive plant in the United States in 2004. They have teamed up with the National Park Service to help preserve these iconic landmarks by helping them have zero landfill. Recycle and reuse are important parts ways to make this happen.

We have over 400 national parks which visitors can visit every day. Amazingly, these parks manage 100 million pounds of waste! The majority of this waste is brought inside by visitors. Alan Bethke, the senior vice president of marketing at Subaru of America says “Subaru and its owners share a passion for helping make the world a better place, not because it’s popular or easy, but because it’s the right thing to do,” and that “Subaru owners are passionate park visitors and we want to do our part to ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy them as much as we have.”

Subaru’s “Share the Love” event has raised over 4 million for the parks, and has also helped clean our oceans.

This week, the National Parks Service is celebrating their 100th Birthday. Park admission will be free of charge August 25 through 28. We have so many, right here in Florida, if you’re able, go out and visit one. If you do, please take out what you bring in.
