Patriot Subaru Earth Day Celebration Event: April 22-23, 2022

Patriot Subaru in Saco is proud to be an eco-friendly store everyday.  We reduce energy spend, we recycle in all departments, and we reuse or repurpose all applicable items. We are a zero-landfill facility, and a Certified Subaru Eco-Friendly store.

Each year,  Patriot Subaru in Saco and North Attleboro both celebrate Earth Day with a special event.
Establishing a window of time leading up to Earth Day, Patriot sets aside a financial donation for every vehicle sold during the designated frame.  The money raised goes to the planting of shade trees in southern Maine. Over the past 8 years the program has earned over $7000 between the two stores, enough to plant approximately 25 trees.

In Maine, money has been divided equally between the Saco, Maine Parks and Recreation Department, and the Portland, Maine Parks and Recreation Department.

Edmunds reported on the story...check it out here

In Portland, four trees were planted in Payson Park, two in the Longfellow Arboretum and two in the regular park area. In Saco, 2 American Elms were planted the reforestation area of Cleveland Street. Here is a note from Joe Hirsch, Saco Parks and Rec:   "We used those monies to purchase 2 very nice hybrid American Elms in our reforestation of Cleveland Street where we had to remove all the mature trees due to the wrong tree being used in the esplanade area. Unless we have a grant or in this case a donation we rarely are able to plant trees of this quality on our streets. They are the gateway trees to that street, one being located on either end. They look great and by the way thanks again for the donation. It helped us complete the project without totally killing our budget as the reforestation of the street came upon us and was not budgeted. Your companies contributions helped greatly. Thank you."
