Hello blog readers! I hope that any of you who made it to the Better Living Show this weekend had a great time. On behalf of all the ecoShuttle family that was there, I have to say we had a great time commiserating with everyone, and checking out new green products and innovations. I personally was excited to see the Nissan Leaf in person. Have I mentioned that ecoShuttle is getting one? I’m sure that I have, but just for good measure, we’re getting a leaf! I have to also say that next to the Leaf was an old 1960’s MGB that had been converted into an electric vehicle, and it was sharp looking!
Some of our favorite highlights included the privilege of providing transportation for a Better Living VIP, the Atlanta Falcons’ Pro-Bowl full-back Ovie Mughelli. Ovie is with little doubt the most eco-conscious NFL player in the game today, and it was wonderful to see his Foundation conducting recycling games to teach children about the importance of recycling and taking care of the planet (As a lifelong Cincinnati Bengals fan, I feel obligated to mention that one of my favorite players, Dhani Jones, is probably a close second behind Ovie for most eco-conscious NFL player- he even bikes to practices and games!). Here is a link to Ovie’s foundation: http://www.oviemughellifoundation.org/
We also had the privilege of driving Miss Teen Earth- Siria Bojorquez. Siria travels coast to coast cleaning up beaches, planting trees, conducting environmental workshops, and participating in fashion shows. It looks like she has a bright future ahead of her, and we wish her the best. I wanted to post our photos from the event but they aren’t available yet, however, I will post them here when they arrive.
