During the month of April, Featherlite participated in NASCAR® RACE TO GREEN™. The program was designed to rally fans, the industry and partners around sustainable behavior through a massive call-to-action to pledge trees that will be planted across the country as well as in a number of areas recently devastated by natural disasters. Featherlite pledged to donate 300 trees on behalf of any Sprint Cup winner in April that was also an owner of a Featherlite race transporter.
Due to wins by Kevin Harvick and Jimmie Johnson, Featherlite donated 600 trees as part of this initiative. In total, NASCAR Race to Green resulted in more than 150,000 trees being planted across the country.
Other NASCAR partners who took part in the program included 3M, American Ethanol, Axalta Coating Systems, Coors Light, Creative Recycling Systems, DRIVE4COPD, Exide Batteries, Ford Motor Company, Freightliner Trucks, Green Earth Technologies, Liberty Tire Recycling, M&M’s, Sprint, Sunoco, Toyota and UPS.
