The Big Green Bus is a project that was founded in 2005 to promote sustainability and renewable energy sources run by Dartmouth College students. Students originally converted a used school bus to run on waste vegetable oil, (WVO), but in 2009 upgraded to a 1998 MCI coach bus.
The BGB is part of the Dartmouth Outing Club and is entirely student-run. The group stops at various public events, as well as schools, camps and other gatherings of people to make educational presentations. The program also educates participants about how to manage an environmental project. The BGB provides tips and educational points through its presentations and its websites.
