Canada is going all shades of green in 2012, not only with the brand new, all-electric Nissan LEAF
, but also with the first official National Tree Day
In order to get Canadians into the spirit of planting trees and saving the environment, Tree Canada and Nissan Canada are joining ranks to promote “treemotion” amongst Canadians. How? Well, the grand prize winner of the Tree Canada contest in which Canadians are asked to get “treemotional” by posting a picture of their favourite tree coupled with a 50-word story about why it is their favoutire, will drive away with a brand new 2012 Nissan LEAF.
National Tree Day will be held on Wednesday, September 26th and the launch event will take place in Ottawa at the Andrew Hardon Park. Nissan Canada will be in attendance, offering Nissan LEAF test drives and helping out with tree planting and awareness activities.
The all-electric, no-tailpipe, fully green Nissan LEAF grand prize will be awarded (and the winner selected at random) on October 2nd, 2012.
