Eco-Trek #9: Green Ideas from the Pacific Northwest to the land Down Under

The ninth edition of Eco-Trek - one of the first ever syndicated green online news magazines and presented by German actress Anita Anthonj- is now available for download and re-publishing for websites, newspapers, and magazine.

In this week's episode Eco-Trek recaps the Mercedes-Benz F-CELL World Drive and the green stories along the roadside in America. At its last stop in Seattle, Eco-Trek encountered the Bag Monster before taking off to the land Down Under.

The Bag Monster Andy Keller is the founder of the reusable bag company ChicoBag. His alter ego, the Bag Monster is a character born of 500 plastic bags stitched together -- the amount an average person uses each year. With his performance, Andy wants to raise awareness about the single usage of plastic bags. 30 billion plastic and 10 billion paper grocery bags are used every year, destroying 14 million trees and wasting 12 million barrels of oil.

The Mercedes-Benz F-CELL Drive
The Mercedes-Benz F-CELL Drive has concluded its North American leg and Eco-Trek takes a closer look at the fuel cell vehicles. The cars are filled with pressurized hydrogen instead of gasoline. In the fuel cell, the hydrogen is oxidized. The result of this process is just water! And, of course, the electricity, that powers an electric engine.
