Working in Manhattan, I have a plethora of food trucks to choose from. Each sells something different and tries to showcase some level of sustainability- such as everything from organic vegetables to sustainable utensils. One thing that seems to alwa

Hi Meena,
Thanks for your comment. There is actually currently only one truck that is leveraging this. They have been thorough on their website to describe how they are using more efficient uses of alternative energy and how their actual appliances help run their business more efficiently.

I love this video and have watched it on a few occassions before. I can probably speak from the young mentors perspective in terms of what the feelings is like after mentoring. As I mentioned in my post, I think it is all about a mindset and a perspective. If you can get young kids to teach and aid grandparents and learning new technology without the expectation of anything in return, then we have a real key to success. The one thing I always wonder how to do is to get the younger generation into that mindset? From what i've seen of my friends and their siblings, our generation was all about performing a task and being credited with doing that task or rewarded. Is there a way right now to show younger kids the power of doing without expectation? I know that community service is a great way to show the power of giving, but its hard to get kids out there to do for those who need it the most. Just a thought.
