Julia Roberts to Promote Biofuels
|By Chris Welch in Biodiesel | July 19, 2006|
“It’s very important that we expand our use of clean energy and make a long-term commitment to it,” Roberts said. “Biodiesel and ethanol are better for the environment and for the air we breathe.” Earth Biofuels and Roberts will collaborate on a special project which promotes the use of biodiesel fuel in diesel school buses. Using biodiesel, Roberts says, is a positive step in reducing emissions and greenhouse gases. She added, “By focusing on school buses, we can affect the health and wellbeing of the people most susceptible to that pollution, our children.”
Earth Biofuels produces and distributes biodiesel fuel and distributes it under the brand name “BioWillie.” Named after country music legend Willie Nelson.
