Long Trail Celebrating Earth Day

Friday, April 17, 2015 | Bars, Long Trail, Spring, Sustainable

earthdaylongtrail

It’s almost Earth Day again, and that means Long Trail is gearing up for its annual celebration. Long Trail has long been known for their environmental efforts, with a number of programs that keep their impact on the environment minimal. They allow farmers to use their spent grain for feed, use cow manure for 25% of their overall power usage, catch and reuse steam released in the brewing process, partner with like-minded businesses and sponsor community organizations committed to the betterment of the environment. And every Earth Day, they give out prizes to bring attention to the important issues facing the Earth. Everyone buying Long Trail at a participating location will be given a special pint glass and some spruce tree seeds to plant anywhere they like. For a list of participating locations, see below.

One location in particular has gone above and beyond to give back to the planet that gave us life. The Railroad Street Bar and Grill, located in Royersford, has had specials on Long Trail throughout the month of April, and bought extra seedlings to distribute among the community in an attempt to beautify and improve the environment. They have a goal of planting 200 trees in the area, and will be giving away Spruce seeds all day. If you don’t have much of a green thumb yourself, Tomato Joe of Royersford Tomato and Vegetable Co. will be there after 4pm to plant the seeds in a cup for you.

Beer is just another reason in a long list to keep our planet healthy, but if we do say so ourselves, it’s a damn good one. So indulge in something you love for a good cause this Earth Day, Wednesday April 22.
