A Green Gas Station?

BP's flagship gas station on the corner of Robertson and Olympic Blvd in Hollywood, CA is constructed of recycled materials and uses a tenth of the energy of a typical gas station. This past Saturday they hosted a Green event and we were asked to join other green companies to display our Treecycle line of recycled seatbeltbags.

We set up right in front of the gas pump. Even the concrete had recycled glass

I was excited to see the Tesla Roadster in person. Only 250 of these fully electric cars were produced. Slightly cooler than the Prius and made right here in California.

Not what you'd expect from a gas station restroom.

The inside looked better than a 5 star hotel and uses less energy than a single light bulb. It even uses reclaimed water. I know, kinda gross but they assured me it's completely sanitary.

as the sun set we got a glimpse of the coolest part of this gas station...

...the energy efficient LED lighting that constantly changes colors.

Guests filled up on treats parked right in front of the gas pumps.

Jonathan from Fresh Pressed helped guests screen print their own organic cotton T-shirts. Fresh Pressed is a do-it-yourself screen print shop in LA. It's decorated like a 1950's Laundromat. I'm working on a project with Jonathan for the launch of the latest Disney Seatbeltbag coming out this Summer.

Taking a break on seating provided by Botanist an eco-friendly line of furniture that's made in USA just like our bags. We actually use their benches in our Santa Ana store.
