04/03/2017Earth Month 2017

Earth Month is officially here and we want to invite our Metropians in Austin, El Paso, and Tucson to help us celebrate by planting 250 trees! Here's how you can contribute some of your points to help us plant trees as well as where you can join us to celebrate Earth Day in your town. Thanks for all you do to reduce your harmful C02 emissions and improve the air quality in your city!

Help Us Plant 250 Trees
April 1 - 30th

Made possible by our partnership with the national nonprofit American Forests, we’ve set a goal to plant 250 trees during the month of April. Here’s how you can donate your reward points to help make a difference:

For just 250 Metropia points, you can plant a tree through American Forests, and all April long we'll match each tree you donate with a second tree! To donate, simply tap on the ‘My Metropia’ store in the Metropia app, select American Forests, and "Redeem".

This will be our first year participating in the City of El Paso’s GRO (Growth, Resilience and Opportunity) event on Saturday, April 29th in the main promenade at the Fountains of Farah. The GRO event is a natural fit, since it is a celebration community and sustainability. We will be there handing out goodies and educating the public about the benefits of planning ahead. Stop by and say “hello.”  In addition to Metropia goodies, there will also be yoga, live music, bicycle education, and other interactive and fun activities for the whole family!
