This is an article by Tim Smith

If you’re like me, you’ve made a new year’s resolution to save money. One of the easiest ways to do that is to start at home with your energy usage. Cutting down on your utility bill can save you money every month that you can put towards a new car, your kid’s tuition fund, or just a home improvement project. Here are 10 things you can do to start saving right away:

03.03.15 - Oregon Extends its Clean Fuels Act

This is an article from Gemma Renton

At the end of February 2015, a significant and important decision was made by the Oregon State Senate. The State’s Clean Fuels Act, which was originally passed in 2009 and was due to expire in 2015 has been extended, meaning its 2015 expiration date no longer applies. This particular act requires all oil and gas producers within the state to reduce their CO 2 emissions created from the burning of fossil fuels by at least 10 percent over the next decade. This new bill sends a firm message to oil and gas producers that Oregon wants cleaner fuels and that we care about the effect our fuel production has on the planet. It also carefully positions Oregon as one of the States leading the fight against climate change.

01.05.15 - Welcome to a fantastic New Year!

We are very excited about 2015, and all the changes here at ecoShuttle!  The last six months have been busy for us. We have finally found a perfect new location, we’ve expanded our fleet and added new staff. The demand for eco-friendly transportation is increasing, and we are working hard to keep up with the demand!

August 1st, of 2014, we relocated to our beautiful new home in Sherwood/ Wilsonville.  With the additional gated and secured space, we can comfortably accommodate the vehicles we’ve added and still allow for expected growth. We now have much larger office and meeting spaces as well as a fully equipped drivers room, modern maintenance facilities, training offices and more, all located in one peaceful forested place!

Happy Friday Blog Readers!

The cold wintery season is certainly upon us. Hopefully everyone is staying warm and safe. I love the holiday season, but, if you’re anything like me, you’re scrambling around like a crazy person trying to find gifts for loved ones. I have found that shopping for parents is never easy. But if you live in the Portland area, I have some great ideas for you.

08.09.13 - Summer is going too fast!

Happy Friday Blog Readers!

I hope summer is treating you well! As far as I am concerned, the summer is going a little too fast. The upside, however, is that football season is nearly upon us (though my girlfriend would probably disagree that that is an upside).

03.08.13 - In with the new, out with the old!

Hi Blog Readers,

The ecoShuttle Blog has taken an extended hiatus due to the fact that we’ve been very busy! We have updated our fleet with some new additions, while some of our old standbys have sadly been retired. One such bus, known fondly as the 17-passenger, has said its last goodbyes after nearly 5 years with ecoShuttle.

11.09.12 - The Post-Election Blog

Happy Friday Blog Readers,

I’m sure everyone is happy to hear that the election is now over. I for one was happy to hear President Obama finally mention climate change while he was delivering his victory speech Tuesday evening. For some reason, climate change has become a partisan issue. This has not always been the case. In 1989, Claudine Schneider, a Republican house member from Rhode Island sponsored a bill called H.R. 1078: The Global Warming Prevention Act of 1989.
