Share a ride, plant a tree
The theme of Earth Day 2014 is Green Cities, which we know a little something about. After all, we’re not only looking to connect you with your city reliably and efficiently, but we’ve always been about reducing our environmental impact, too.
From paperless receipts, to increasing the number of eco-friendly vehicle options, to encouraging people to leave their cars at home, Earth Day for us isn’t just one day in April. We’re always looking to find new ways to make Uber even greener, and this Earth Day, we’re planning something that will surely make Mother Nature smile.
For every fare split trip in the U.S. on April 22nd,
we’re donating $1 to the Earth Day Network
|SPREAD THE WORD|
Every dollar will be used to plant a tree, which means thousands of trees will be planted on behalf of our riders and partner drivers. So get your Earth Day party started — grab a friend and share a ride. It’s for a good cause!
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
- Grab a friend and request a ride
- Fare split (Not sure how it works? Check out this blog post)
- One dollar will be donated from your ride to the Earth Day Network to plant a tree. So by sharing a ride, you’re actually helping the earth breathe easier.
