EarthFirst.com: Get On the Schwaggin’ Wagon!

Posted by andy on July 22nd, 2008

Schwaggin’ shout out to EarthFirst.com for coming out and supporting The Schwaggin’ Wagon at Twiistup4 and SummerMash LA last week. EarthFirst.com knows that even a little bit of green sustainability goes a long way:

If you’ve ever been to a convention, you probably have some of this junk sitting around your office or home: mugs, hats, pens, calendars and other items emblazoned with corporate logos.  You may use some of them for a little while but chances are, before long they’ll end up in the trash.  The brains behind The Schwaggin’ Wagon, Michael Liskin and David Preciado, realized how wasteful that really is one evening over some Thai food, and decided to do something about it.  The Schwaggin’ Wagon, which runs on sponsorships, travels to conventions and takes all that schwag that no one wants and donates it to charity.

What little things does you consciously do in the name of sustainability?

GeoGraffiti is a free, community-driven messaging service, that aims to tap into the collective wisdom of the 200 million-plus mobile phone subscribers in the U.S. via a single 1-800 number. GeoGraffiti enables users to ask and answer questions, voice an opinion, announce an event, or just leave a mark:

GeoGraffiti’s mission is to organize the mobile phone community’s “wisdom of crowds” intelligence, and to facilitate the exchange of that location-specific intelligence by providing a voice-driven platform that is accessible from any phone and any place.

Think of GeoGraffiti as a verbal message board for sharing and retrieving Voice Mark™ messages while you are out and about visiting different places throughout the day. A Voice Mark™ is a short phone message that shares information (e.g. opinions, tips, warnings, advice) about a place, an event, a topic, or really anything else you care to share….

The Schwaggin’ Wagon is proud to be sponsored by GeoGraffiti and we look forward to beta-testing the service at Twiistup4, Summer Mash LA and beyond. Join us!

Did you ever think you’d hear us say we are The Schwaggin’ SUV? For this Tech-Event-Week in Los Angeles, we are proud to team up with Eco-Limo to create the Schwaggin’ Eco-Wagon! We will be ridin’ around Los Angeles in a Bio-Diesel Ford Excursion SUV, compliments of our sponsor, Eco-Limo.
Eco-Limo\'s Ford Excursion Bio Diesel

Why are we so pleased at this sponsorship/partnership? It’s not because they were chosen to service the Academy Awards for the last four years. It’s that Eco-Limo is one of only 6 companies in California featured on Google’s Google Green site, and last year they received the Grand Prize in Sustainability by the City of Santa Monica, recognized as well by the California State Senate and Assembly! In short, they rock the eco-world. They are exactly what we were looking for in terms of transportation.

Here’s our Twiistup 4 badge:

We are excited to be a part of Twiistup 4. This is an important event for the tech community, exposing LA to new technology startups. Thank you to Mike Macadaan et al. for your generosity and readiness to welcome the philanthropic actions of the Schwaggin’ Wagon at Twiistup 4. For those who don’t yet know about this event – we recommend you get on the wait list ASAP!

And the next night…
We will be at Mashable’s SummerMash Los Angeles! (see post below) We are pleased to be a common thread for what is proving to be a huge technology weekend in Los Angeles.
