Dozens of Twice Daily convenience stores across Williamson County will be giving out organic lollipops with seed-bearing sticks all day Friday, all in celebration of its one-year anniversary of Thrive – the company’s new reduced emissions program, which also coincides with Arbor Day.
The lollipops will all have biodegradable, seed-bearing sticks which can be planted to grow into an herb or flower. Participating locations will be giving out lollipops all day Friday, with no purchase necessary, though supplies are limited.
During the Thrive program’s first year, Twice Daily planted nearly 12,000 trees in partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, offsetting emissions from more than 95 million gallons of fuel.
Founded in 1972, the Arbor Day Foundation is the largest nonprofit membership organization dedicated to tree planting, and is currently aiming to have planted 100 million trees by 2022.
