Although Nissan Has Dropped the Leaf to go Green, But If You Wanna Talk Green, General Motors is pulling in about 100 miles worth of oil-soaking booms, 100,000 pounds worth that would have otherwise gone into landfills, and turning them into stacks of plastic parts that will go under the hood and in the front bumper of the Chevrolet Volt.
The booms come from the Louisiana coasts, where oil is still being collected. These 100 miles of booms will provide enough parts to outfit the entire first-year production Volts. Who’s Clean Now????
