How about a bunch of bamboo cars with Bud and Miller painted on them racing around the closest high banked oval? The Epoch is a design study of what an ecology friendly race car might look like.

There are no carbon emissions because it's made out of bamboo, is powered by maglev at each wheel, and the rest of the car is made from recycled rubber.

Implications - In today's world, any product prefaced with the words "eco," "eco-friendly" or "green" generates a great deal of consumer interest. The movement towards environmental friendliness is at full speed and consumers are even going so far as to boycot products that potentially harm the environment.
