:027 Eco-Towing Business

Suggested Review – none

Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:027 Tip: Evaluate your business to see how it can provide eco-benefits. Here’s an example:

Problem: Traffic snarls caused by stalled vehicles blocking lanes wastes gas, ups the carbon ante, and results in frustration from the traffic jams.

Solution: A company has hit on a “transformer technology” that makes a lot of sense for the the towing industry. This motorcycle towing-vehicle can zip around traffic jams to access a stranded vehicle that’s blocking traffic.

Once there it unzips to become a tow vehicle –

-and gets those idling cars moving again.

***********************************

Additional Information: Please share this with your friends and tow truck companies – I would like to see this catch on here. These are the types of innovations that can help on many levels.

I’ve tried to find out more about these mo-tow-cycles without any success. Rumor has it they are manufactured in Sweden. Anyone know?
