Bio-Diesel Action Center


Los Angeles Biodiesel Community Conference a raging success!

A great big ‘thank you’ goes out to all who participated in last night’s event; this includes both the organizers for making this event happen and the attendees who committed themselves to positive change in the world. But let’s not stop with last night; let’s keep this biodiesel ball rolling! Commit to participating in upcoming biodiesel events in the Los Angeles community.

On August 19th there is the Biodiesel Working Group. This working group meets regularly in Los Angeles to promote biodiesel and move biodiesel forward on the following fronts: education, legislation, station development and fleet usage. Contact Crissi Avila @ crissiann@gmail.com

On August 25th is 100-car Biodiesel Parade.

What is it?
A Bio Brigade featuring 100 biodiesel vehicles to kick-off the opening gala party for DO IT NOW: LIVE GREEN, a sustainable and experiential exhibition with Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis College of Art Design. The exhibition focuses on the home and features products made from renewable, recycled, and repurposed sources by individuals and companies who are creating designs with environmental integrity. The show represents the intersection between art and functionality and will provide a sensory exploration and practical demonstration of today’s sustainable designs that visitors can touch, feel and experience first hand as they tour the exhibit.

Where?
The Bio Brigade will depart from BioBling’s headquarters in Culver City. Head west on Culver Blvd., south on Lincoln to Otis.

When?
Meet at BioBling at 3pm. Depart 3:30pm. Arrive at Otis at 4pm, where four cars, plus the LA Biodiesel Co-op trailer will be staged front and center.

Purpose: Press opportunity to promote a “100 cars for 100 stations” initiative as well as the Los Angeles Biodiesel Co-op
