Come June 17th, a bunch of kids from Dartmouth will be embarking on a cross country road trip to preach green. This is actually the 5th Annual Cross-Country Road Trip where students try to educate various sectors about sustainability and green living on a big green bus.
But here have been improvements. The Big Green Bus has undergone major changes. For one, it will be running on waste vegetable oil. However the most glaring thing about it is that this bus has been transformed as a classroom on wheels which can more than accommodate the 40 educational stops across its route.
“This year, the Bus interior will resemble a ‘green’ living room. We hope to connect with homeowners by presenting environmental and economic issues facing our society today, and how individual action can help mitigate these problems,” according to Merritt Jenkins, a member of Dartmouth’s Class of 2010 and co-general manager of the Big Green Bus. “From New York to San Francisco, we will be traveling the country helping Americans make energy conscious choices.”
