Lance Charles ENVL '98 investigates the 2010 Green Expo and finds some wonderful innovations that fit neatly into the five elements of the WholEarth System: portable water bottle filter, mobile solar, Amazon herbs, hydrogen conversion systems. Don't miss the April 13 LA Eco Party. Guests on the live broadcast include chef Mike Clark, back from LA Eco Party 1 to cook up some more super-tasty local foods, and Alex Rivera of howtosavefuel.com to talk about the latest in hydrogen conversion for your car or motorcycle.
