Georgia Natural Gas(R) to Give Away Free Saplings in Celebration of Earth Day at Atlantic Station

/PRNewswire/ -- The first 200 visitors to the Georgia Natural Gas (GNG) venue at Atlantic Station's Earth Day Fair will receive a free sapling (one per household) to celebrate the event. Provided to GNG by the Georgia Forestry Commission, the young trees are native to Georgia and ideal for planting and cultivating immediately. The trees will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

GNG representatives will be available at the Earth Day Fair to share weatherization tips with the public and to provide copies of It's a Natural -- the company's guide to free or low-cost energy-efficient solutions for the home. The company's representatives also will share the internal sustainability efforts under way at GNG's Atlanta headquarters. In 2009 GNG received the Clean Air Campaign's Pace Award and, for the second year in a row, the Metro Atlanta Better Business Bureau's Torch Award for Community Service.

Georgia Natural Gas is Georgia's first and only natural gas marketer to obtain recycled natural gas from a landfill. GNG is using a waste material as a clean-burning resource for Georgia. Thanks to new technology, methane gas at Georgia's Live Oak Landfill is collected and made ready for consumer use. It becomes recycled natural gas when it is processed and injected into the existing natural gas distribution system for delivery to homes and businesses.

Georgia Natural Gas serves more than half a million residential, commercial and industrial customers throughout Georgia. GNG is part of SouthStar Energy Services, a Georgia-based joint venture between AGL Resources (NYSE:AGL) and Piedmont Natural Gas Co. (NYSE:PNY) . SouthStar also operates in Ohio as Ohio Natural Gas, in Florida as Florida Natural Gas, in the Carolinas as Piedmont Energy, and in other parts of the Southeast as SouthStar Energy Services.
