- anything that can be made out of wood or plastic can be made from hemp
- farming only 6% of the u.s. with hemp could produce enough energy to end america's dependence on fossil fuels

the earthdog veggie-mobile
take a classic 1978 diesel mercedes, add a greasecar kit and a tank of vegetable oil, and you end up with a vehicle that emits no pollutants, costs pennies to drive and smells like anything from doughnuts to egg rolls. yes, it’s true, the diesel engine was never designed to run on fossil fuel. a simple “greasecar“ conversion kit allows any diesel engine to run as it was originally designed - pollution-free, burning any straight new or used vegetable oil available.
as we’re all aware, the issues of fossil fuel dependency and it’s effect on the environment are troubling at best. we have taken a step toward lessening our impact on this crisis and encourage others to consider responsible options for the future of our planet.
