Do you think offsetting your carbon footprint is important?:

Planting a forest... One test drive at a time

Carter Fall Tree Planing Event

In one year the average car puts over 5 tons of Carbon Dioxide into the air. Now you can decrease your carbon footprint. How? With a tree! Just test-drive or purchase a Subaru at Carter and we'll plant a tree in your name in the Mountains to Sound Greenway, the scenic byway along the I-90 corridor stretching from Seattle over Snoqualmie Pass into Central Washington. Together we can make a difference and be on the road to Carbon Neutral!

It's tree planting season once again. Scroll down to read more about our fall tree planting kick off!

For each car test-driven at Carter Subaru, one tree will be planted in the Mountains to Sound Greenway, funded by Carter Motors. For each car purchased, three additional trees will be planted. So, if you test drive a car and buy it there will be four trees planted in the Greenway!

The idea is simple, to offset a year of the carbon emissions of your car, 4 trees have been planted (1 at your test drive and 3 upon purchase). Those trees will live their lives here locally in the Mountains to Sound Greenway, and will actively be absorbing tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Over their lives (average life of 70 years for Northwest trees), these 4 trees will absorb one year of carbon emissions of a car getting 21 miles to the gallon that is driven 12,000 miles.
