SEATTLE, Wash. – Eleven Dartmouth College students, a bus powered by vegetable-oil waste, and one monumental goal makes for the summer’s most wicked road trip. On a mission to empower Americans to reduce their environmental impact, the Big Green Bus will travel over 12,000+ miles, visiting 45 cities, including a stop in Seattle, on Saturday, August 4 from 5 p.m. – midnight, at evo.
… The bus, a retired school bus retrofitted to run on vegetable oil waste, features a NASA-quality solar panel that provides electricity, a telescoping wind turbine, and sustainably-harvested hardwood floors, and serves as a rolling eco-lab of interactive exhibits and presentations, demonstrating both cutting-edge and simple cost-effective methods that every American can adopt to reduce their environmental impact.
Environmentally-minded Seattle partners including evo, Clif Bar, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and Five Ultimate, along with local greasy spoon Roxy’s Diner, joined forces with the bus to host a serious Big Green Bus party! In addition, to environmental education, this event for the entire community, will feature local band Handful of Luvin, DJ 100 Proof and all-you-can-eat fun (with free cold beverages)– and only a $5 admission.
Buses, music, and all you can eat? The one weekend I’ll be out of town…
