"The unrestrained exploitation of natural resources is merely a symptom of an overall sickness of the human spirit. Any solutions to the environment/development crisis must, therefore, be rooted in an approach which fosters spiritual balance and harmony within the individual, between individuals, and with the environment as a whole."
Bahá'í International Community's statement for the proposed Earth Charter, 1991
Initially our interest was simply to create a local (Marin) supply of Biodiesel so that we could run our 1985 Mercedes Benz 300D Turbo on a renewal, non-polluting and "No War required" fuel. Lucky for us as our own plans dragged on, Lance and Campbell were able to get a tanks installed and created LC Biofuels, which was later handed on to the wonderful ladies at Biofuel Oasis in Berkly.
With a local supplier available we happily left the fray, but since we already had this web site, and enjoy the conversations it leads us to we decided to maintain it.
now we provide free, friendly, advice for those who are interested in
using alternative energies but are at a loss to know were to begin.
Having no financial interest in a particular producer or supplier, we stand ready to help you negotiate this new landscape, finding you the information you need to make your decisions.
We are friendly and approachable. Bryn is a Librarian by profession, Sherna is a professional writer and are both deeply committed to the environment.
about Biodiesel, Straight Vegetable Oil (SVO), Waste Vegetable Oil
(WVO), B100, B99, B20, B5? And what about EV? - This is where I think
we should be headed - see my blog
Contact us and we will work with you to help you understand this new path to the future. It is not the answer to the worlds ills - just one of many that will contribute to a sustainable world along with a sensible public transportation policy, and a move away from the rampant individualistic materialism that is destroying the world.
