GreenPrint- Creating Carbon Neutral Gasoline
Consumers today expect sustainability and social responsibility. Millions of consumers are willing to pay more for organic products and green cleaning supplies. Blue bins are everywhere and over 89% of us recycle. Yet, given the state of automotive technology, consumers still emit millions of metric tons of CO2 when they drive.
So what if you take our culture shift and apply it to gasoline- a natural resource that Americans use more than than anyone in the world. What if in addition to paying that extra $1 for organic milk or grass fed beef, we paid a few cents more per gallon of gas for an eco-friendly gasoline? And what if that full tank could make the planet and your community a better place? That's the idea behind Village startup, GreenPrint. Taking your everyday purchase and turning them into a greener, brighter tomorrow. A place where you can drive clean and breathe easy.
Pete Davis and Trenton Spindler, founders and all around awesome people share with us how they are turning this into a reality right here in Atlanta.
