Shouting the Message
Kevin Salwen on Environment & Sustainability
Hybrid car owners can be an arrogant bunch -- I know because I am one. And at lunch today with my friend and new hybrid owner Tina, we were lamenting that Toyota has shrunk its hybrid logo on its vehicles to a teeny 1x2-inch space (I'm guessing) that whispers "Hybrid Synergy Drive." I want to tell everyone: This is a hybrid and you should be driving one too, especially as you're sitting in the drive-through or the carpool line tossing emissions into the air! I even toyed with leaving the massive HYBRID sticker on the passenger window when I bought the car because I wanted a bigger message.
So, I've gone searching for bumper stickers: I've never been a bumper sticker guy, but I am tempted by messages from both the right and left end of the political spectrum.
From the right: "My Car $tarve$ Terrorists. Does Yours?"
From the left: "Bush-Cheney Hybrid Vehicle: Powered Partly by the Blood of American Troops"
Even from the feminist view: "It's Not a Boy's Toy. It's a Hybrid."
