SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 14, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Planet Group, Inc. (OTCBB:GNPG) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary Xentx Lubricants has implemented a new program to reduce the emissions and improve fuel economy of school busses which is titled "Save the Teachers". This new approach provides two significant benefits, the first being to reduce the pollution surrounding school busses and therefore improving the student's environment and secondly to significantly reduce the cost of school bus fleet operations. These savings can then be used to either keep or hire new teachers.

The Company began testing its systems and technology with the fourth largest school bus fleet in the U.S. eight months ago, which resulted in actual savings of $1,067 per 8,000 miles of fleet mileage. The overall annual savings are projected to be approximately $2 million and these funds could be used to offset teacher costs. It's estimated that the school system could pay for an additional 30 teachers from the savings while not increasing its overall budget. Additional information relating to this unique program will be released to the market shortly.

"The success of this program to both positively impact students health while at the same time help school systems maintain their academic capabilities is extremely rewarding, while positively impacting revenues," stated Edmond Lonergan, President/CEO. "Revenues from this business segment are another reason that I believe Green Planet's revenues will exceed $70 million," concluded Mr. Lonergan.
