Green Slow Moving Vehicle

Here's something simple we can all do. Put one of these stickers on the back of our vehicles.



Very simple, very small web page is at:
greenslowmovingvehicle.com


The idea is simple. Slow down to conserve fuel, help the enviroment, save money.

I should have grabbed one of these stickers from Ryland when I had a chance.

Pretty sticker

After my last trip, I wanted to write this (in french, so this English version may not be grammatically correct ;-) on my car's back :

Smart driving = Saving
Time + 11% = Fuel - 33%

Real figures from my last trip comparing to the same trip one year ago. Single change : the nut between the wheel and pedals

The save of fuel paid 2/3 of highway tolls

Denis.

Contact from the Green Slow Moving Vehicle guy

I E-mailed the guy who put together the "Green Slow Moving Vehicle" project.

Hope he doesn't mind me sharing a bit of his e-mail back with you guys.

"Hi Benjamin,
You have no idea how important it is to receive encouragement on our conservation action. We think it is a piece of the puzzle and critically important. It empowers the grassroots and gets everybody involved, and a link to ecomodder.com will be very helpful for spreading OUR message. Please stay in touch and call with ideas and comments. We have just added a super size for the back of semi's, truck's and van's."



Hear that? A super-size for semi's and vans!?!?! All-right!
Lets make sure anytime we find somebody out there working hard and doing the right thing - support them and spread the message!
