Using CNG Natural Gas for a Greener Earth
Drinx Logistics utilizes CNG Natural Gas local transport trucks. The BC’s transportation industry is the biggest contributor to provincial greenhouse gas emissions. By utilizing CNG natural gas we can significantly reduce those emissions.
Natural gas fuel can reduce greenhouse gas emissions from trucks by up to 30 percent when compared to diesel and gasoline. Natural gas vehicles also emit up to 95 percent fewer nitrogen oxides (NOx).
Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, which are the principal greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming, are reduced by up to 30 percent when natural gas is used.
Natural gas trucks emit virtually no particulate matter, the harmful microscopic component of air pollution that penetrates deeply into the lungs.
Imagine Thailand Foundation
Mission: BUILDING STRONG COMMUNITIES
Drinx Logistics believes in the capacity of youth, university students, and skilled professionals to create a new future for communities in need. Our work impacts multiple communities across the globe. We want to be a partner that brings real benefit and change to local communities, the marketplace, and the world.
With the help of the Imagine Thailand Foundation, we bring assistance to children at risk, victims of terror, survivors of natural disasters, and refugees fleeing oppressive governments.
Since their foundation, Imagine Thailand's focus has been on connecting two sides of Thailand's society - university students with the education to initiate transformation and local communities that are in need. Imagine Thailand is a bridge between these opposite ends.
Drinx Logistics believes in those who have society’s permission to bring change. We hope our partnership with the Imagine Thailand Foundation can be the catalyst for a new generation of young adults who want to make a meaningful difference in their world.
Imagine Thailand is a registered Thai foundation (registered as Imagine Thailand Foundation, reg. no. กท 1917) with Thai and Canadian leadership. Motivated by our Christian faith, we assist people regardless of race, religion, political affiliation or gender.
Donating Masks to Frontline Workers
Drinx Logistics is a proud supporter of the "Masks for Frontliners British Columbia" campaign.
See more details here - https://www.help-us-donate-mask-to-frontline-workers
British Columbia healthcare workers asked our community to donate mask, gloves, and goggles to hospitals. Our hospitals and front line workers are running low on Personal Protective Equipment like masks, gowns, gloves, and goggles.
This equipment is very important to protect our frontline workers while they are treating patients or getting exposed to patients with COVID 19.
To help out, Drinx Logistics has been contributing frequently to the project. We hope that local hospitals and charities that will receive these mask as soon as they are ready. Our government is working on getting all the supplies but there is an immediate need for mask to keep our frontliners while we wait for everything come in place.

From HBC to Bio-Diesel
The Drinx Logistics now uses previously owned vehicles from HBC that are run by bio-diesel. This green initiative helps to reduce the carbon footprint and the amount of carbon emission from our trucking fleet.
Bio-diesel provides several other environmental benefits:
- It is renewable: bio-diesel is made from renewable resources
- It is biodegradable: neat bio-diesel (B100) degrades faster than petroleum diesel.
- Potential for reusing certain waste products such as animal fats can be redirected away from our landfills.
- GHG reductions: compared to diesel, biodiesel has the potential to reduce GHG emissions by over 80% on a life-cycle basis.
- Reduces tailpipe emissions such as particulate matter, hydrocarbon, and carbon monoxide from most modern four-stroke CI or diesel engines.
- Less toxic: a bio-diesel blend would be less toxic than petroleum diesel.
Great Vancouver Food Bank Donation
Ukraine Destiny Center
Ready for Winter. This week there has been a birth in the house of a single orphan mother from Bogodukhov. Yasya and her son Daniel (20 months old) live in a small house that she bought on the orphan's pension saved for all the years she had spent in the orphanage. The house with its shabby windows was quite cold in the wintertime, and Daniel got sick very often. Hope For The Nations helped her to buy and install three new high-quality windows. Yasya's challenge was to save $40 as her contribution to the purchase of the windows which she did, but she got this money back as a blessing to buy medicines for her boy.
Annual Walk for S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation
We are a proud supporter of the Annual Walk for S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation. With over 30 years of history, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foundation's annual Walk with the Dragon has a reputation of being BC's largest family scenic walk and festival with over 4,000 individuals including participating in a panoramic walk along the seawall. Every year, families and youth are inspired to participate and fundraise to support the cause.
As a result of their generosity, proceeds of this event benefit urgently needed S.U.C.C.E.S.S. programs and services that are currently non-funded and partially funded by the government, particularly those pertaining to youth, women, families, and seniors.
Drinx Logistics is honored to participate in the Volunteer Grandparents program. We have been a partner for years and continue to contribute when we can.
