The First Green Gas Station Is On Olympic/Robertson

I pulled into the gas station on Olympic and Robertson this morning and was greeted by a cute woman named Peg — a green team member — asking me if this was my first time.

I admitted it was.

She proceeded to tell me about how this was the first green gas station and that all its power came from solar energy.

It was so exciting, my first conversation with a woman in some time and it was for a good cause, that I stopped her and asked if I could put this on video to show my mates.

She said yes. And now, even the nights are better because I have documentary proof that a young woman is willing to talk to me.

You, you knew just what to do, because you had been carbon polluter too, but now you’ve made a fire start and I, I can see… I never dreamed there’d be a sun to power me…
