Forward to the Zero Emissions Future
The true power of Unpollute is that it's about your solutions, your way, your skill set, your personal choices... Lets enable (w/$) and inspire, starting with families and friends and where we live...
With today's gas prices soaring, and the need to reduce our carbon footprint and global warming problems, alternative transportation is the way to go. But where do you start? What are some of the choices out there? What fits in best with your lifestyle and family needs? What are best or cheapest solutions for bikers who commute to work or wish to use no car? How does the rest of the world deal with transportation issues? I know we can learn from other systems and start some new ideas too.
My own new idea is the Unpollute Gift Card Fund, coupled with the Unpollute Transportation Wizard, funded by carbon offset donations and other donations as explained in the Unpollute Bill. The plan is that I'll send you, in the order by which you sign up to this website, a gift card that you can use to BUY yourself alternative transport stuff. From Bikes to Bus passes, or shoes to e-scooters, the Wizard should be a great guide that comes up with both practical and surprising solutions to your particular situation.
If a purchase will enable zero pollution transport, your Unpollute Gift
Card will pay for it up to the value of the card. Or re gift the money to the person in your household that needs it most.
As soon as the funding reaches $500, the first Gift card will go out.
I want to start getting cars off the road ASAP!!!
1-2-09 I added the Unpollute Gift Cards to change.org. It looks good on there, but I missed the voting window. I updated the Card plan too, now I like it even more! It's not just about biking and Zero Emissions transportation... check it out.
I need help with the Wizard. I want to make Unpollute.org a helpful and practical site. I want Unpollute to be great non-profit able to accept carbon offset donations and credits.

PS I want to try out a shaft drive bike and get a kid carrier... (as of today, 7-12-2010 I've tried electric bikes, nice! and also a belt drive bike, but still not a shaft drive bike... and now I tag-along with my 8 year old daughter, I think at 9 or 10 she'll be biking for miles side by side with me...)
I'm not having the control of the mobile version like I'd like. But this ning site looks pretty good on a PC / Web browser!!!
I updated the site description blurb. I think it's cool. It was "Promoting a Greener and Healthier You! Everybody needs Transportation, Food, And Energy! Save yourself, save money, save the planet," but now it's refreshed.
Supporting and Choices are very good new words to start explaining Unpollute. :) Everybody needs Transportation, Food, and…Continue
