ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - Folks have a chance to give back to the environment the next time they’re paying at gas pump.

Tiger Fuel is partnering with Green Gas at all nine of its locations across central Virginia to help reduce carbon emissions.

When you pay for gas at the pump, an option will come up to donate to GreenTrees, which is a reforestation program. In return, Tiger Fuel will give you a free cup of coffee.

"We try and do everything we can to lower or lessen our impact on the environment, and so I think it's important we all do our part," said Maurice Lamarche, director of operations.

Since donations started, enough trees have been plated to absorb carbon emissions of 144,000 miles driven on Virginia roads.
