In the 52 years since the first Earth Day, there have been many positive changes in terms of protecting our environment, thanks to efforts by governments, industries, and everyday people. However, challenges remain here at home and around the world.
Our waters are becoming clogged with trash, as exemplified by two enormous garbage islands twice the size of Texas in the Pacific Ocean. Deforestation around the world contributes to accelerated soil erosion, as well as the loss of trees that transform carbon dioxide into oxygen.
The potential for climate change-induced damage is increasing. Hurricanes and typhoons are more frequent and more destructive. Antarctica just had a heatwave, with temperatures rising 70° above average. In March, the Conger Ice Shelf, which is comparable in size to New York City, collapsed into the Southern Ocean off Antarctica.
Many of us want to do something to lower our environmental impact but are not sure how to do it.
We can start with our homes, with Earth-friendly propane and improved Bioheat® fuel, as well as high-quality, efficient home heating and comfort equipment from Pioneer Oil & Propane.
Propane is named as an alternative fuel in both the 1990 Clean Air Act and the 1992 National Energy Policy because propane burns so cleanly, with much fewer emissions than other traditional home heating and energy sources. Its efficiency and versatility help you shrink your carbon footprint while enjoying greater comfort!
Our Bioheat fuel is a blend of ultra-low sulfur heating oil, already a major improvement over traditional heating oil, along with biodiesels made from renewable resources such as plant oils, algae, animal fats, and recycled restaurant cooking grease. Bioheat fuel produces dramatically fewer greenhouse gas emissions than traditional heating oil, and also creates less wear and tear on your heating system.
You may achieve up to 98% efficiency with today’s high-efficiency heating, cooling, and comfort equipment installed and serviced by Pioneer Oil & Propane. That’s not only good for the environment; it’s also beneficial to your wallet.
