This is what you call motivation!

After the Erb family saw “Who Kill the Electric Car” and “An Inconvenient Truth” one week, they went out and made a difference. Rob and his son Dylan took a family members old pick-up truck and turned it into an electric car. Check the story out here.

Go away bags!

Everywhere you turn, bags seem to be disappearing. First it was China and  Australia, followed by Israel and now (while) not a country, Whole Foods is going to phase out plastic bags by Earth Day April 2008. Read the article at ENN.

Wheels on the Bus

As a father, I couldn’t help but notice this article. The article in the paper reads  “The Deals on the Bus”. It also reminded me of a time when I took the bus for a summer vacation. Like they say, “leave the driving to us”.  The article is “Greyhound revs up with a revamp, fact lift” in USA Today.

Car sharing comes to middle america

I was shocked but none the less happy to see that car sharing has come to St. Louis. I remember looking into it several years ago. Read “Car Sharing Makes its Area Debut” in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Anitfreeze

Thanks to a book I’m currently reading called “Twinkie, deconstructed” by Steve Ettlinger this article over at LiveScience caught my eye. It’s entitled “New Antifreeze Improves Ice Cream“. Scarry!

I’ve recently read two articles on living in an e-world. The first comes from ENN.com abuout a recyclable hotel being built in Britian entitled “UK builds recyclable hotel” and the second article is about a project in Swedem that will be warmed by peoples body heat. This article “People power to warm new building in Stockholm: project leader” can be found at Inhabitat.com.
