Veggie Van Visits PQ


In support of the fifth grade study of sustainability, the Westchester County Veggie Van visited Pequenakonck Elementary School recently to illustrate exactly what the students had been learning about. The Veggie Van is retrofitted to be fueled entirely by vegetable oil, which produces only 20 percent of the pollutants of a normal diesel engine. It has seating inside so students can watch DVDs on global warming and pollution and find out about what alternative fuels can do for them and the environment.
