Comments Off on Congress is letting tax credits for hydrogen-fuelled cars expire at the end of 2014

If you’re planning on buying a hydrogen car – you should do it quickly. That’s because the federal tax credit worth up to $8,000 for fuel cell vehicle purchasers expires on Dec. 31, 2014 due to the fact that Congress didn’t renew it before their holiday break. According to Autoblog , this isn’t the first tax credit for greener vehicles to suffer from the 113th Congress’ lack of action. The electronic motorcycle credit was killed as Congress was getting ready to close down for the season but a house bill managed to extend the Alternative Fuels Excise Tax Credits for liquefied hydrogen and other alternative fuels.

Comments Off on Awesome Green Gift Wrap Idea: Silk Scarves!

While it makes a fun tradition, gift-wrapping packages with paper and tape is an inherently unsustainable practice – think of all the paper and ribbon that goes into the trash each holiday season for the sake of making presents pretty. Here’s a lovely green gift-wrap idea to greenify your packaging regime: wrap your present in a silk scarf this year! Not only do scarves make beautiful, easy gift wrap that requires no tape or scissors – but the durability and multiple uses of scarves mean that the gift-wrap itself becomes part of the present that can be worn and reused again and again. BOBO wrapping scarves are silk scarves that are designed for the express purpose of wrapping presents. They can mold into a variety of shapes and the cloth material can be re-used over and over again!

Electric vehicles seem like an enlightened way to get around without having to resort to a gas-guzzling jalopy or sacrifice personal freedom. Unfortunately, if you are considering buying an EV, you will almost certainly come away from the dealership with a much lighter pocketbook. In an effort to lessen the sting of going green, California Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi has proposed a bill that would use the post-purchase value of the car to reduce taxes and fees for plug-ins .
