What Makes the Big Green Bus Sustainable? (thebiggreenbus)
The Big Green Bus is a student-run environmental project from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, and is currently visiting the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
A dozen college students are touring America, sharing lessons about the benefits of "going green" and learning about the various environmental issues facing different communities.
Wherever it parks, the Big Green Bus attracts attention. On one stop, at the Grand Biloxi, it's the focal point of an environmental awareness exhibit.
"This summer, we are traveling the country and we are learning about sustainability and environmental issues in different areas. And how they affect different communities," said Meegan Daigler, the 21-year-old manager of the Big Green Bus project.
Big Green runs on bio-diesel. Solar panels transfer power to ten batteries which convert the sun's energy to electricity.
