CO2 Green Drive and Earth Day New York collaborated for the fourth time on the annual Global Earth Day celebration, on April 22nd 2014. The "Green Car Cat Walk" performance was done on Union Square by Mr Green along with a variation of Bikes and Electric & Plug-in Hybrid vehicles.
The official video from The New York Mayors office, with a speech by Mayor Bill Di Blasio that also joined in on the celebrations.
Toyota, who has been the main partner in the production for a couple of years, had a large variety of vehicles that who had an alternative to the Combustion Engine. Their #greenitabit promotional concept, wanting to make everyday Earth Day, is a nice green step in the right direction.
Mr Green did a lovely job in their performance, with directions an inspiration to the gentlemen who stood on the side of Chuck D, Terminator X and Flava Flav.
The only difference is that they wear black, and Chuck D, Terminator X and Flava Flav has been exchanged with a Green Vehicle..
But the Green Vehicles also come in Black.
And Miss Green is way more attractive..
They also come as SUV's
