Erik Pettersen, Sierra Club Foundation – John Muir Chapter08-13_Pettersen_JU

Erik Pettersen has been an indispensable volunteer with the Sierra Club Foundation John Muir Chapter, helping on clean transportation and renewable energy by doing office work and creating video for the web. Erik is so committed to moving beyond oil that he travels by bicycle and bus—though he came to the National Plug-In day event in his friend’s Chevy Volt.
