Rob Greenfield will travel from San Francisco to Vermont on his bike leaving virtually no carbon footprint. That is more than 4,300 miles. He has a bamboo bike and solar panels to help with his journey.Rob:
I’m solar powered, I’m not using any electricity from on the grid, turning on any light switches or plugging into outlets. Then I am not using any water from on the grid either. Not turning on any faucets or showers or washing machines.Rob:
Rob carries his trash with him and he also plants flowers at various locations during his trip. He plans to arrive in Vermont in the late August. Subtitles by the Amara.org community
