Meanwhile, the American Lung Association of Iowa is offering an Earth Day special for drivers in Des Moines with an E85 promotion on Thursday. Des Moines station Dahl’s will be offering E85 for just $1.85 from 10 am until 2 pm. Lt. Gov. Patty Judge will speak about Iowa’s leadership in cleaner-burning biofuels at a 12:30 p.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony at the station.
“This event is the unofficial kickoff of Earth Day weekend, which is capped by Saturday’s free Blues for Greens concert in Waterworks Park,” said Jessica Zopf, environmental health coordinator for the American Lung Association of Iowa. “The promotion at Dahl’s will also include some new flex fuel vehicles from Bob Brown Chevrolet, hot dogs, chips and drinks for a dollar, and plenty of information about E85 fuel and the vehicles that can use it.”
