Our franchisees and front line staff are thrilled to be supporting Tyson and Cloe by saving their oil to help power their vehicle, and we applaud their commitment to educate the country on sustainability and environmental options. On behalf of New York Fries, we wish Tyson and Cloe all the best in achieving this most important mandate.”

Veg Systems, founded in 2005 is one of the leading edge companies designing, researching, and selling vegetable oil conversion kits and components.  These "Veg" systems allow diesel engines to be fueled by new or recycled vegetable oils (also called plant oils), biodiesel or petroleum diesel.  Conversion systems have been successfully installed on tens of thousands of personal and commercial vehicles.  This has made it possible to reduce pollutants, reduce our reliance on petroleum and let us keep some of our money in our wallet!  For more information about our research and products visit us online at www.veggiefuelsystems.ca.

“When Driven to Sustain contacted us to sponsor their attempt to break the world record for distance traveled by alternative fuels, naturally we were ecstatic to help.  Their desire to make a difference and educate the continent about sustainable, realistic and alternative choices fits hand in hand with the reasons we do what we do here at Veg Systems.  Their incredible record breaking journey will also give us the ability to test new products under extreme climatic variations and extended use and to show the viability and importance of recycled vegetable oils as a clean and viable fuel source to broaden and "green" our energy demands.”

-Will Cox, president of Veg Systems.

I re-launched Modrobes specifically to give people the option to buy clothing that is made through an environmentally clean process and yet still performs just as well as other sport specific gear. Most people do not realize the amount of toxic chemicals that go into making even one jacket (approximately a  pound per jacket). Part of our reason for being as a company is to educate and create a cleaner sources for everyday clothing needs. Visit modrobes.com

“I met Tyson and Cloe at the Green Living Show when we started chatting about my broken down biodiesel SUV. Once I found out more about their trip I was impressed and excited that they were spreading the word about environmental sustainability and the real possibilities of ending our addiction to polluting fuels. They are a fine example of the leaders that we need now and in the future to get our environment clean and to educate people about their part in making a better world.”
