Environmental Movement Growing at Schools
BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The University of Vermont's embrace of the environmental movement has turned nearly everything on campus green - even John Orr's 1985 blue Mercedes.
When Orr fuels up the diesel car, he tops off the tank with five gallons of recycled vegetable oil from local restaurants. The bio-fuel additive is part of a class project aimed at improving air quality.
The effort is just one example of how Vermont and a growing number of schools are employing cutting-edge technology to protect the environment.
