The Green Suite Of Chicago Launching The Green Van Project

I received word yesterday from Chicago-based purveyors of survival and sustainable living-related training The Green Suite (first blogged about here) regarding a new project they’re launching- and looking to fund. From international crowdfunding website

The Green Van Project

One Man, One Van, and a Plan to Save the World.

Since it’s inception, The Green Suite has been on a Mission to save the world. With innovative classes, hydroponic kits and recycled products, Nick Conrad has shared his eco-obsession with countless future green-o-philes in the Chicago area. Despite this success, Nick was looking for a bigger way to expand his audience and have a greater impact. The solution, quickly revealed itself: a DIY, sustainable showroom on wheels. Enter The Green Van Project.

With a goal of 15,000, this eco-prototype will test the limits of a mobile yet sustainable lifestyle. The more money that can be raised, the more features will be added to The Green Van. This project is a culmination of five years worth of R+D in solar electricity and hydroponics and will prove just how far a DIY green lifestyle can take you. Taking the tiny house concept a step farther, the goal of this project is to combine every off-grid necessity into the compact space of a Dodge Sprinter. Once completed, The Green Van will be mobile classroom/laboratory/workshop/micro house all rolled into one sleek, well-designed package.

Plans to include:
• eco-friendly, veggie fuel system to recycle used cooking oil into fuel
• regenerative water system to recycle rain water
• solar panels on the roof to power on-board electrical system
• composting toilet and worm bin to turn waste into soil
• multi-purpose internal furniture for maximum use of space
• sleeping area for up to four people
• roof top deck and storage rack
• integrated soil and hydroponic garden
• compact, propane powered kitchen for organic, on the road cooking
• hot and cold running water system complete with shower

Only with your help can The Green Van Project bloom into a reality. Support today and The Green Van might be rolling to a city near you!

Sounds pretty cool and worthwhile. Head on over to The Green Van Project’s page on here for more information and to help.
