WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In Celebration of Earth Day, Green Earth Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: GETG), a leading US manufacturer and marketer of "green" environmentally safer consumer packaged goods and products, announced today a campaign to "Change Your Oil, Change the World!", encouraging consumers to switch from their current petrochemical motor oil brand to G-OIL®, the world's first and only American Petroleum Institute (API) Service SM Certified 5W-30 Bio-based Full Synthetic Motor Oil, grown and made in the U.S.A.
With oil prices at their height and consumers looking for sustainable high performance green solutions, G-OIL, a blend of nature's American grown base oils made right here on our soil, makes it possible to reduce dependency on foreign oil and off-shore drilling. G-OIL is not a re-refined or a recycled oil, but a bio-based FULL SYNTHETIC motor oil that provides superior performance and protection during the maximum oil change intervals recommended by vehicle manufacturers.
"We believe that every consumer is potentially a green consumer, not only because it makes sense to do so, but because it's easy to make those simple changes in your daily routine without sacrificing quality or performance," said Jeffrey Loch, President & CMO of Green Earth Technologies. "Our risk free 'try it you'll like it' trial approach makes it easier to choose green and should certainly lead to future requests for G-OIL at their next oil change."
The average consumer changes their oil 2-3 times per year, and Green Earth Technologies will now give consumers the option to try the API certified G-OIL free from risk, giving them the confidence they need to purchase it the next time or ask for it by name at their next oil change.
The G-OIL Mail-in Rebate form will be available at www.getG.com and in USA Today on Earth Day and will be valid for a 5-quart bottle of G-OIL 5W-30 purchased from April 22, 2011 through April 30, 2011. For a complete listing of participating retail locations, visit www.getG.com.
