Subaru Wins a Silver Halo Award for Reducing Waste at National Parks

2019 Subaru Crosstrek | Beaverton, OR

Subaru has a well-earned reputation as an environmentally focused brand. Recently, those efforts earned the automaker a 2020 Silver Halo Award, which recognizes businesses that promote helpful social and environmental causes.

In collaboration with the National Parks Conservation Association, Subaru of America has furthered its “Don’t Feed the Landfills” initiative by launching recycling and composting programs at three of America’s most beloved parks — Denali, Grand Teton, and Yosemite. Since the pilot program began in 2015, it has diverted over 16 million pounds of waste from local landfills.


“Our national parks represent the very best of the American great outdoors, and we feel a responsibility to keep them clean and free of waste for future generations to enjoy,” remarked Alan Bethke, the Senior Vice President of Marketing for Subaru of America.

Theresa Pierno, President and CEO for the National Parks Conservation Association, says that the automaker’s zero-landfill practices have helped the park system learn more about the best way to implement recycling programs at the parks. She expressed that the NPCA hopes to implement these waste-reduction practices in parks nationwide.

Every year, Good Housekeeping releases a list of the best new vehicles for families released that year. For the second time in a row, the Subaru Outback was awarded the title of the website’s Best Station Wagon.

In order to compile the list, Good Housekeeping’s editors evaluated nearly every facet of more than 50 vehicles and drove more than 5,000. According to the site, they look at everything from standard and available safety systems to how it is to install a child seat. The 2020 Subaru Outback wowed them in just about every way.

They heaped praise on the wagon’s “rugged exterior design,” as well as its comfortable, versatile passenger space and plentiful cargo room. Additionally, the Outback’s numerous standard driver-assist features like Forward Collision Warning, Automated Emergency Braking, and Adaptive Cruise Control earned special notice.

Being named to Good Housekeeping’s list of Best New Family Cars for 2020 isn’t the only impressive accolade the Outback has earned in recent months. The iconic wagon was selected for Autotrader’s ranking of the best new cars on the market due to its balance of power, value, safety, and refinement.
