Posted in Uncategorized on August 22, 2006 by theseep

I used this Biodiesel Station map option last week going down to the Ben Harper/Damian Marley concert last week and it was great! We filled up with B99 for around $3.40/gallon! We’re planning a trip maybe next year either across the country or to Baja on Biodiesel/SVO so this map will be very useful!

Tesla Motors Sells Out Their First Run of Electric Sports Cars!

Posted in ethical consumerism, green energy, sustainability on August 16, 2006 by theseep

Tesla motors, the new upstart in eco-friendly electric vehicles, has sold out thier initial offering of the first 100 electric sports cars slated to come off their line in 2007. The Tesla Roadster goes 0-60 in 4 seconds, pacing with the big boys like Ferrari and Porsche but is 100% electric and goes a whopping 250 miles per charge. The company has an excellent transparent business plan – hit the high end market first to make capital for R&D for the next generation of highly efficient, family-targeted electric cars!
The’ve pre-sold their first 100 for $100,000 each to the likes of both of Google’s co-founders, eBay’s Jeff Skoll, and hopefully a few eco-celebs with some extra cash.

New Anti-Hummer Bumper Stickers at the S.E.E.P. Store!

Posted in conservation, ethical consumerism on August 11, 2006 by theseep

I’m slowly adding items to the S.E.E.P. store and seeing if there’s a response. I may expand to a premium cafepress shop which allows me to have more than one version of products (right now I can only have one organic cotton shirt design in the store). Obviously inspired by the last post on McDonald’s and Hummer toys, I made a new bumper sticker – you can finally “stick” it to all those Hummer drivers you see in parking lots and hopefully get a laugh.
