As a born and bred Floridian, I understand that for many people NASCAR is a deeply holy activity, second only perhaps to football or all-you-can-eat buffets.
When you think about NASCAR and other driving related sporting activities, the first words that pop into your head probably aren’t: eco, green or environment. But celebrity driver Leilani Munter wants to change all of that.
Munter describes herslef as a “carbon-free girl”, and a “vegetarian hippie chick race car driver,” and has started the Eco Dream Team — a green program that encourages NASCAR fans to become more environmentally-aware about their lifestyle and how it effects the world around them.
As previously stated, Leilani is a proud vegetarian and when you consider the fact that the meat-industry contributes more towards global warming than every mode of transportation combined, one could argue that she is technically more of an environmentalist than her bicylce-riding meat-eating counterpart.
What do you think? Can Leilani help NASCAR go green? Chime in and share your thoughts!
