The Clean Cruiser project promotes carbon conscious travels 

Co-founders Nathan Stuart and Steven Ploog.

Team will travel from Paso to Panama, carbon-neutral

–The Clean Cruiser Project has been restoring two iconic Toyota Land Cruisers for nearly a year now, and they are about to reap the benefits of their efforts. The team will be taking one of their beautifully restored vehicles to Las Vegas to be featured in the SEMA automotive show this November. While there, co-founders Nathan Stuart and Steven Ploog will have the chance to spread their message of carbon conscious travel to an estimated audience of 70,000 people.

In May of 2019, the team will embark on a 60-day carbon-neutral expedition through Central and South America, making use of biofuels and participating in reforestation efforts to accomplish this task. The non-profit hopes to inspire individual carbon footprint reduction by producing a web-based film series that is not only entertaining but informative.

The team will visit several reforestations sites where they plan to physically plant 200 trees to offset the carbon emissions produced by the combined 10,000mile journey. Additionally, their non-profit organization hopes to raise enough funding to plant an additional 10,000 trees.

The Clean Cruiser Project will have their trucks on display at The Pour House in Paso Robles on Friday, Nov. 23. The craft beer bar is celebrating its 9th anniversary with live music from 1 p.m.- 12 a.m. The team will be fielding questions and accepting donations towards their goal of planting 10,000. You may also donate to the project via their website.
