Weswings to add eco-friendly food truck?

Nathan Mackenzie ’12 spotted this on the Weswings website:
Coming to a street corner near you!
Weswings and the Red & Black Café are looking for members of the Wesleyan community (students, faculty, staff, and alumni/ae) to join us in an exciting new venture. We will be adding a green (eco-friendly) food/catering truck that we plan to make run on used fryer oil and maybe solar powered electrical systems. There will be plenty of ways to help, you don’t have to be a mechanic. If you are interested in finding out more and joining this project, (and just maybe saving the planet) email us at weswheels(at)weswings.com. We will be having an informational meeting, to further explain the project, in the next few weeks, after we gage interest from the community.
Sounds like a great idea – an environmentally friendly service and more food options on campus. Weswings has created a blog – weswheels.blogspot.com – about the venture. Will Mamoun’s lose its monopoly on the on campus food truck business?
[Edit]
Ed and Karen of Weswings and Red and Black Café also emailed us about it — looks like it’s official.

    Not that I’m opposed to either idea, but Mamoun’s hardly has a “monopoly” on campus. weswings, however, will if they start a van to compete with the only other non bon appetite vendor on campus.

    16: so environmentally-friendly actions only count as “good” if they are done only for the sake of the environment, and not for actually being useful?
    guess we should stop paying people to recycle cans…

    Also, this isn’t even necessarily a move done for the sake of the environment. It makes a lot of sense for weswings to make their truck run on old cooking oil. You know, because they have a shitload of it and gas is really expensive.

    ……stinking up the neighborhood with french fry smelling cancer causing exhaust gasses….polluting the campus with thrash that will be thrown all around….ecofriendly?

    WesWings is not owned by Wesleyan. It is a private business. They are just located on campus. Sorry to ruin your paranoid neo-con tirade.

    You got owned. Stop trying to shift the blame.

    It’s unbelievable how Wesleyan is broke, yet it’s still forced to make expensive, token environmental statements to appease rich hippie students. Budget cuts are being made left and right -people are losing their jobs- but at least we’re reducing our carbon footprint by one iota of a degree. Stupidity.

    Maybe it is more environmentally friendly to walk to your food rather than driving the food around, no matter what it is that you use as truck-fuel. And healthier!

    Poster 6. The use of the prefix re- in front of reused fryer oil actually throws the reader off in the first place setting up the thought that somehow the fryer oil is being reused. And since fryer oil is not reused in car but in friers. Therefore, the sentence’s syntax is the one to blame.

    Who said it was trying to save the world? Chill out, this is just a fun project they’re doing. It’s not true that doing anything besides “saving the world” from the current crisis is “encouraging denial” about it…

    This seems fun but will hardly “save the world.” Let’s not encourage denial about the magnitude of our current crisis.

    The re-used fryer oil will be used to power the truck (instead of diesel fuel) NOT to cook with.
