Wow. Earth Day can often be a real drag -- a bunch of people showing you how to feel bad about yourself because you're not buying coffee beans from the right place. But in NYC on Earth Day, I happened upon the BioBus -- a really positive and educational experience all-around. The science experiments were important, and yet easily explained to the "layman" by the BioBus's staff. (Examples: Photosynthesis, solar energy, microscopic organisms found in common lakes and rivers, agriculture...) Kids and adults were intrigued and entertained by the ideas presented on the BioBus. The bus, which runs on bio-fuel gathered from fast food restaurants (finally, a use for all that grease!), even has it's own "rooftop garden," where grasses and other plants are grown. Look at their website to see where they're touring, and look for the bus when you can -- it's colorful, one of a kind, and easy to recognize. Highly recommended. http://biobus.org/

Recently, we noticed that some of the recycling trucks in NYC also run on bio-diesel fuel -- the same used on the Bio Bus. I was able to share knowledge of this with our kids, and show them how things are being done now to help improve the environment.
