Why You Should Drive Green in 2014 (& Why We Love Oats!)

Despite the flu that has been plaguing me since my trip to Detroit and the latest snow storm (that will remain nameless), we managed to get together in the Green Diva Studio and fill up an hour with good information and fun.

Our latest Green Dude discovery is Dan Cohen, who writes for GearDiary.com, and as it turns out he’s a Rabbi. He’s a very interesting green dude and we look forward to having him in the studio more often.

We met Rabbi Dan a year ago in Detroit a the North American International Auto Show, and discovered that not only was he a gear and tech guy, but he also lived in Boonton about a half mile from our studio!

Dan Cohen @ Green Diva StudioWe had big plans, but as life sped by I didn’t see Dan again until I was in Detroit for the same reason this year! Yikes. We were both guests of Ford again and I’m so glad we ran into each other, although I’m still dismayed that we managed to NOT cross paths in our own hometown!

So, last week, he braved the cold, snow and ice (and my lingering flu) to trek the half mile to get to the studio and come and talk about driving green in 2014.
