On January 10, 2011 I had talked about how CCM News was presenting its Eco-Trek weekly news video magazine in which the crew will circle the globe in a Mercedes B-Class F-Cell fuel cell vehicle uncovering stories of environmental importance.
As an update, Eco-Trek has made its way through Europe, traveling 2,300 miles with zero emissions and has now landed on the U. S. shores. The first destination is Miami.
This week’s episode features an eco-friendly fashion designer, a green parking garage and an underwater cemetery (and no, this isn’t the mobster kind of “feed ‘em to the fishes” kind of cemetery).
The next stop for the Mercedes B-Class F-Cell will be New Orleans where Eco-Trek will feature how some of the city is rebuilding its neighborhoods in a green and environmentally-friendly manner. Maybe they’ll even check on those little pink houses that Brad Pitt built after Hurricane Katrina struck, which were in fact very green at heart.
Anyway, if you want to keep up-to-date on the Eco-Trek here’s the Youtube Channel where you can watch the episodes.
