A new shop ‘green-tune’ cars to run cleaner, greener and cheaper while ‘fixing’ the whole bad automotive service experience. It finds proven, sustainable, energy saving automotive maintenance and repair related products. It also keeps you out of stale gas smelling waiting rooms with their bad coffee and old magazines through a convenient consumer valet and corporate mobile on site services.
Carbon Dioxide Per Mile: The EPA's New Standard
Created 5/28/2010 8:32:30 AM 
In case you missed the news, the EPA announced new emissions rules for cars recently. The rules are expected to cut emissions of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases about 30 percent from 2012 to 2016. Officials said the program would save the owner of an average 2016 car about $3,000 in fuel over the life of the vehicle and eliminate emissions of nearly a billion tons of greenhouse gases over the lives of all regulated vehicles.
Freeze Your Tires for Profit
Created 5/12/2010 7:56:52 AM 
Currently more than 300 million tires are ditched every year in the U.S. alone, and most of those are simply dumped in landfills or burned for fuel, mainly at cement plants. The world's population is growing and the advent of smaller and cheaper electric cars will likely put more drivers on the road, so unless anything changes drastically the number of discarded tires is bound to grow.
What We Miss About Greenhouse Gases
Created 4/26/2010 8:02:12 AM 
 The bulk of the region's greenhouse gases come from the production of stuff, not from cars and transportation. This is interesting because it highlights our lopsided thinking about climate change. The media tends to focus a lot on solutions like hybrid cars and CFLs, but transportation and energy use are relatively small parts of the problem.
How to Travel Without Ruining the Planet
Created 4/21/2010 8:24:03 AM 
 Travel is a time to let go, unwind, indulge, or explore. All good things, but that doesn't have to mean a vacation from your otherwise squeaky-clean, environmentally responsible habits. Travel is one of the more wasteful industries—just think of all those single-use bottles of moisturizer, the carbon cost of transatlantic flights, the rented cars—taking measurable tolls on the planet. Each additional 10 pounds per traveler, for example, requires an extra 350 million gallons of jet fuel each year. That's enough to keep a 747 jet flying continuously for 10 years!
A New Green Twist on Car Rentals
Created 4/12/2010 8:59:17 AM 
For many urban dwellers, the idea of owning a car just doesn’t make sense. Public transportation as well as highly marketed car renting services like Zipcar and City CarShare make it easy enough to get around. But if you do own a car, wouldn’t it be nice to make some extra money with your car that usually sits on the street or in a garage for most of the day? Well, one company is betting on just that.

Sex Sells: Angry Green Girl
Created 9/2/2009 8:48:17 AM 
As many incentives as there are for consumers to go green these days, 'hot girls' strikes us as fairly novel. A new eco-site called Angry Green Girl is celebrating its launch with a car wash featuring five models sporting teeny green bikinis, who'll sud up eco-friendly cars for free using waterless cleaners. The site will provide earth saving tips, product reviews, home makeovers and green networking.
The Secret of Free Rental Cars
Created 8/5/2009 9:02:05 AM 
Renting stuff instead of buying them is a green, sustainable process. It reduces waste, save you money and you don't end up owning a lot of stuff that you may use rarely. Just as airlines are happy to sell you a one-way ticket, car rental companies also takes advantage of the fact that sometimes people only need to rent one-way to get from A to B. A one-way rental can be the perfect trade off for travelers who don't love flying that much, or for those relocating to a new state.
The Business of Luxury Eco-Commutes
Created 4/6/2009 8:04:02 AM 
Cities around the world try to get cars off the roads and there's been increasing emphasis on public transportation, ride-sharing, telecommuting and bicycling as eco-minded alternatives. For instance, San Francisco now requires that all employers with 20 workers or more offer a transit benefit program to support greener commuting. One new way however, is a luxury eco-bus used to give commuters a high-end ride to work.
