For months, I’ve been harping about the need for Americans to rise up off our couches and computer chairs and DO something to help our country. The answer to “so, like what?” crossed my radar this morning. Friends, I believe it is now possible to maintain one’s rosy rump roost AND do something profoundly patriotic. Here's the scoop.
A Reuters story via Yahoo News tells us that Energy Alternative Solutions, Inc. (a California biodiesel company) is partnering with grocers, restaurateurs and fast food places like KFC to recycle food waste into alternative fuel.
EASI said its restaurant-grease biodiesel will be sold at fueling stations in Central and Northern California as a blend of 20 percent biodiesel and 80 regular diesel known as "B20."
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, using B20 can significantly cut greenhouse gas emissions and smog, EASI said in a press release.
Ergo, the more greasy grub we consume, the greater is our measurable contribution to environmental responsibility. It is now our patriotic duty to eat French fries in ever greater quantities. What goes around comes around, oui?
Thought you'd want to know.
