Prius -- The Kleenex of Green Car Brands
Kevin Salwen on Environment & Sustainability
I noticed the 'green car' pitch at last night's Academy Awards. Leonardo DiCaprio, Charlize Theron, Robin Williams, Orlando Bloom, Salma Hayek, Penelope Cruz, Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins won awards for environmental awareness by arriving in the Prius. Check this out:
'By foregoing gas-guzzling limos, Oscar attendees show their support for fuel efficient cars to decrease our dependence on fossil fuels, reduce air pollution, and stem climate change,' said
Matt Petersen, president of Global Green USA. 'By choosing to ride in a fuel-efficient car, like the Prius, they send a strong message to the American people and the world that we can all be part of the solution to global warming and our addiction to oil.'
Interestingly the Toyota Prius is getting to be the first thing (perhaps the only thing) we think of when we consider 'hybrid vehicles' although this is about to change.
