Now Rolling Through a City Near You
We’re living vicariously through the team from the Big Green Bus this summer. In the 3 short weeks they’ve been on the road, this 12-person team and their veggie-oil powered bus have already lobbied with senators on Capitol Hill, danced at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Tennessee, and served with a Hurricane Katrina relief organization in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. We think they’re Earthkeeper Heroes not only for their commitment to alternative energy education, but also for managing to maintain such a frenetic schedule!
With every stop, the Bussers are spreading the good green word and growing their fan base. There’s something undeniably friendly about a bright green school bus — packed with bright, enthusiastic college students — that invites onlookers to come closer, take interest, and listen to the story of this passionate team and their effort to educate America about the importance of alternative fuel, one city at a time.
Sadly, we don’t have enough vacation time banked to join the Big Green Bus team on their summer tour. But we’re following their every move through their blog, video posts and podcasts on Changents.com (and now you can, too).
And we’re not the groupies following from afar …the Boston Globe has taken a shine to the Bussers and their mission as well. Click here for the Globe’s feature story on the “Big Green Machine Dream Team,” and follow their ongoing coverage through the Globe’s travel blog.
Roll on, Bussers. Here’s hoping for a smooth ride, copious veggie oil and greener days ahead.
