Hi Everyone,
We are comming to the festival with our veggie -bus...
Our 1992 Converted School Bus runs on Veggie Oil or Bio-Diesel, uses Solar and Wind Power, has Solar Shower, Composting Toilet, and Wood Fireplace.
We will have Organic Kitchen providing Families with Healthy Food and Snacks.
We plan to travel to across the country stopping at schools, festivals, and Concerts to promote the use of biodiesel.
Our goal is to make the benefits of using biodiesel common knowledge. Through the use of biodiesel the nation can lesson its dependence on foreign oil, reduce emissions that contribute to smog, and virtually eliminate carcinogenic exhaust particulates.
Purpose
1. Awareness Goals
Our goal is to educate the public as to the alternatives to fossil fuels, and show that switching from a fossil fuel to a renewable resource does not necessarily mean a change in lifestyle.
2. Alternative Fuel Source
Biodiesel greatly reduces harmful emissions. Carbon monoxide emissions are reduced by 48%, hydrocarbons by 67%, particulates by 47% and sulfurs, a particular problem with petroleum diesel, are reduced by 100 percent.
3. Reducing dependence on foreign oil
The use of biodiesel reduces the consumption of and the dependence on foreign oil, while supporting American farmers and industry.
4. Increase domestic farming industry.Biodiesel can be derived from any plant-based oil. The soy bean, rape seed, peanut or sunflower industry in the US can have an enormous opportunity to grow.
Please tell us about any other cool festivals and pass on our info or include us in your Eco Villagesad smileyEnvironmental awareness & sustainability educators and suppliers) ... We have alot of healthy alternitives to share.

Hey Sis April - How was the Whole Earth Festival ? Glad to hear so much love is going into your bus! Tajvia is coming up this weekend, so I will find out if she's going to the fest - if not I just might have to join your caravan - I'll keep you posted.

Pass along my greetings to Curt and the youth - peace and happiness

Sorry Jonothan - got a little sidetraked! Big up to your cause - sounds like you really are a sage man. Hope you get some real exposure - oil business has been corrupting the world far too long.
