Josh Cahill of Victor Eekhof waved goodbye to Berlin on Friday, kicking off their twelve-month Pole 2 Pole 4 Charity road trip of green discovery from North Pole, Alaska to Antarctica.
Josh Cahill of Victor Eekhof are about to embark on a road trip from North Pole, Alaska to Antarctica in a van powered by recycled cooking oil. Along the way they will raise money and support for Ecosia, and in turn WWF's work in the Amazon.
The duo waved goodbye to Berlin today, kicking off their twelve-month Pole 2 Pole 4 Charity
They aim to support the green search engine Ecosia along the way by selling advertising space on their van ($10 for individuals and $50 for businesses). All money raised goes to Ecosia and 80% of Ecosia’s search ad revenue goes to support WWF’s work in the Amazon.
The tour will visit some 26-odd US and Canadian cities
in the first three months of their trip. They’ll CouchSurf
and document green projects, programs and otherwise exciting goings-on in the realm of environmental sustainability as they go.
Josh and Victor begin their journey in New York City with a visit to Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx on Saturday 13 May 2011, with Green Apple Kids, a charity promoting environmental consciousness and action among New York City kids. Stops in Boston, Toronto and Chicago will follow shortly thereafter as they make their way north to Alaska.
