Have you ever seen a Fed Ex truck whizzing by with writing on the side touting its low emissions? Supermarket chains are getting in on greening their delivery fleets too. Major chains, Meijer and Winn-Dixie are purchasing efficient, low emissions diesel trucks which are expected to reduce CO2 and nitrogen oxides emissions from the air. Meijer itself projects a 47 percent reduction in particulate matter, a 55 percent reduction in nitrous oxide and a 3 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions – environmentalleader.com. Of course, this is a good marketing campaign but it is also a boon to their bottom line by reducing their fuel costs over time (they wouldn’t be doing it otherwise). Green can be profitable too!

Give Water a Brake!
Every time you step op the brake pedal when you're driving, copper in the form of brake dust is worn off the pads. This eventually winds up in the environment, contaminating our precious water resources. Copper pollution directly harms salmon and other sea creatures.
California and Washington have already passed legislation that will eventually remove all copper from brake pads. The Earthgarage team has created the "Give Water a Brake!" petition. Our goal is to pressure elected officials in the rest of the U.S. and Canada to pass legislation to phase out copper in brake pads.
