Re: Is a Prius good for the environment?

You know, I just logged in again, and I seem to find very few reports of the Prius being bad for the environment.

Just saying hello

Hello! I have just begun to make the transition to veganism. I quit meat two months back. I've been strictly vegetarian since. I do consume dairy, though. I'm hoping phase out diary consumption also.
