The Official Pardon from Saveagallon

In Uncategorized on September 29, 2009 at 2:18 pm

I knew from the start that this road trip wasn’t the most eco-friendly way to report on the sustainability movement. Yes, it’s been weighing on my conscience and my heavy carbon footprint. That is, until the good guys at Saveagallon issued me this Official Pardon!

I joined the Saveagallon community after college as a fun way to gauge all that carbon and cash I was saving by walking and biking to work everyday. It’s a great way to keep yourself motivated to maintain your alternative methods of transportation, and they make it fun for the whole family. Over the past year, the SAG guys have experimented with projects like SAG eco-allowances for kids, where you can tally alternative transportation savings to offer as incentives for your kids to carpool to soccer practice and more.
This year the organization based in Davis, California has teamed up with Davis Bicycles in a year long project with the Davis School District. They’ve created a mechanism to track participation in an alternative transportation contest by user, classrooms, schools and school districts to generate some real buzz around environmental responsibility, health, and community participation amongst kids.
Just the kind of stuff the movement for sustainability is built upon.

Saveagallon Issues it’s first Pardon!

So, you know we are not keen on driving… However, what if a road trip had a net societal benefit?

A longtime friend of SAG has done just that. The Sustainability Across America Tour is sending writer Laura Jones across the country to interview the major players in the sustainability movement.

The reports are honest, eye opening and beautiful.
Two of my favorite so far are:

Ms. Jones, for all your hard work and dedication to making the world a better place, we at would like to present to you one very cheesy, virtual pardon to drive as much as you need to see this tour through. If anyone give you any trouble about driving and eco-reporting just send them to this link. We’ve got your back!
