Since Peyto was shut down in the summer of 2006, I’ve been working on modifying this website to serve as a blog documenting my current work in “green” engineering. I’ve finally had time to do some of the work, and I will continue to update the site with more info on eco friendly product design over the next few months.

The UBC Supermileage Team placed 7th of 28 with 3378 mpg in a Japanese fuel efficiency competition. Here is some footage they put together:
The next link is to an interview with Ray Anderson, founder and chairman of Interface, one of the worlds largest carpet manufacturers. He had a “green epiphany” 10 years ago and realized what an impact the toxik chemicals in the carpets his company produced had on the environment. It’s such a rare case for someone in a position of power to not only realize they are part of the problem, but to actually act on it. And thats all it took to completely turn the company around. Imagine how much effort, how many activists, “eco-aware” comsumers, government regulations, etc. it would normally take to have any minor impact on changing the way a company operates. In this case, it was one mans realization that it was his responsibility to do so. Thats why this story is, unfortunatly, so unique. You hippies might remember him from the documentary, The Corporation.
