… why .. hmmm.. .I am incessantly behind the curve on stuff. It happens that I am on the board of directors for an organization called Biodiesel for Bands. I’ve been to one work session. I’m still confused …but I know that what’s up is important, and I’ve been asked to help. So, okay, I can do that…
Instead of you running off to the site, here’s the lowdown … please read through to the end; I’d like to ask a favor of you – but you kinda have to know what’s up first – right? I grabbed this info from the org’s FB page.
Biodiesel for Bands (BFB) is a membership network of musicians, artists, supporting organizations and music fans that provides education, affordable touring vehicles and biodiesel fuel; saving our members money while reducing their carbon footprint.
Biodiesel for Bands will provide professional, clean and timely waste oil removal services for participating restaurants nationwide. Customer service to our donating restaurants will be our highest priority. Restaurants will receive a tax deduction for these donations.. Restaurants that donate to BFB will also benefit from an increase in internet and social media traffic via our website, facebook and twitter feeds. They will also be helping to reduce petroleum consumption locally and help musicians and bands to tour and return home with more money in their pockets. Musicans and Artists with more money in their pockets, eat and drink out more often…the circle of life.
BFB will provide high quality biodiesel to member bands at a subsidized rate. BFB will also provide technical assistance, consultation, and support for bands that are looking to purchase a touring vehicle. Some diesel vehicles are more compatible than others when it comes to using SVO and B100, so BFB will help members make good decisions when making their next vehicle purchase. For member bands that do not own a diesel vehicle for touring, they can rent one from BFB and our partners at affordable rates.
