At InterState Oil Company, we are committed to our social responsibility by giving back to our community through our chosen charity, Make-A-Wish®, and are dedicated to continuing the growth of our support each year through our Swing for the Wish charity event. We also take pride the reduction of our carbon footprint through various environmental responsibility efforts.
Making Wishes Come True Since 2006
InterState Oil Company first partnered with Make-A-Wish® Northeastern & Central California and Northern Nevada in 2006. We have since raised over $290,000 and have granted over 48 wishes through our annual Swing for the Wish Charity event.
Each year, we come together with our industry, community, local vendors, friends, and families for an evening of fun and games in efforts to grant the wishes of critically ill children. It is an incredible cause we are honored to be a partner of and we owe our gratitude to those who donate to and attend our event each year. Proceeds from our event’s sponsorships, donations, and silent auction go directly towards Make-A-Wish®. For more information about Swing for the Wish, please visit www.swingforthewish.com.
Driving Towards a Cleaner Future
Most of InterState Oil Company’s fleet is ran on Biodiesel (B20). Biodiesel is made from renewable resources and is a biofuel blend that consists of up to 20 percent Biodiesel and 80 percent petroleum diesel. There are numerous environmental benefits to using biodiesel. Using a biodiesel blend of B20 has been shown to reduce the output of certain emissions compared to using petroleum diesel. Biodiesel is nontoxic and biodegradable, and it is nearly free of sulfur and carcinogenic benzene, which are two of the components of petroleum diesel that the EPA and state emissions boards regulate due to environmental and health concerns.
A Cleaner Approach
InterState Restaurant Services offers a clean, convenient and eco-friendly service of collecting and recycling used cooking oil into biodiesel, a sustainable and clean burning alternative fuels. When converted to biodiesel, billions of gallons of waste cooking oil and grease can be diverted from landfills and water pipes. Reducing fuel consumption by recycling used cooking also reduces the consumption of fossil fuels in the transport sector, and limits greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. For more information on how your restaurant facility can benefit from recycling your used cooking oil and contribute to the environment, please give us a call at 844-434-4343.
