Welcome to our home.
 
Home for this quartet of eco-activists is a bus. And it’s touring the country to spread a message of sustainability. They call their effort bio-tour.

 We are seeing a society that is not living sustainably, that is exploiting resources to the bare minimum. And we’re, you know, we can see it with the degradation1 of our natural resources, with oil depletion2, with anything out there.

 They’re taking their message to college students and anyone who will listen. The bus itself is an example of sustainability. It runs on bio-diesel and used vegetable oil. 

 Restaurant owners or managers are more than willing to donate it to us, 'cause often times they have to pay to get rid of it , 'cause it’s a waste product.

 Solar panels on the roof power rechargeable batteries.

 And we use the energy stored in those batteries to power laptop, computers, cell phones and various electronic appliances.

 Bio-tour plans to expand to a fleet of four buses this fall, coinciding with the presidential campaign.

 We want a society in which we can all live sustainable, that relies on renewable energies, and an active and participatory democracy. It’s a human problem, and as humans we can solve it.

 Rob Marciano, CNN.
