Eco Company meets new super hero Mr. Eco, AKA Brett Edwards! He's the green-caped crusader who is saving the planet one rap verse at a time. Jalena catches up with him in a recording studio in his hometown of Fresno, CA. Mr. Eco spreads his message of green living through original rap songs as well as parody songs with instrumentals from top rap artists. On this day he is not only in the studio, but also performing at an elementary school when his fan base is something else!

Then Eco Company heads to Monterey and a visit to the world renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium! But we're not just there for the exhibits. We have a behind-the-scenes pass to find out more about the Sea Otter Rescue program called SORAC. We get an up close look at female otters who act as surrogate mothers for injured, abandoned or orphaned otter pups...and raise them to be re-release into the wild. Wow, such a rewarding job.

Then it's on the the Bay Area and the annual Electric Vehicle Rally & Car Show! Now there's a group of people passionate about their mode of transportation! Jordan gets the scoop on cars, motorcycles, and bikes in ALL shapes and sizes from owners who have done conversions. From classic cars to the newest models and even the quirkiest, the Electric Vehicle is hitting the main stream and capturing the imaginations and interest of devoted fans.
