    It's time to leave your computer for once and actually walk outside to the mailbox. Two and a half months after Toyota offered the first 1,000 people who signed up a free badge illustrating how much positive effect your Prius has had on the planet, unmarked white envelopes are showing up across the country containing the custom-made loot. It's a nicely made badge with a chrome painted plastic frame and acrylic-covered custom artwork.
    Not surprising, the badges were first showing up last week on the West Coast, with mine on the East Coast showing up just yesterday. Now the only question that remains is where to install it on your car?

    Very cool. If you have 2 Priuses do they send you 2 identical badges? Anyone know?

    Also what does a "custom-molded adhesive vehicle badge" look like? How do we know if we were in the first 1000 or 10000?

    Thanks. According to their equation a Prius saves about 667 lbs. of co2 per 1,000 miles driven compared to the other cars. (if my math is correct)

    I can see Rodney slapping this badge somewhere on his car.

    I have only ca 350 miles on my Prius in the week I've had it, so I get a badge with one teensy sprig on it. Funny.

    But wait a minute, shouldn't I get more sprigs for NOT driving?? Reduces CO2 emissions even more, no??

    You mean 'doesn't increase CO2 emissions as fast', don't you?

    But you are right, less driving is better. But 350 miles in one week is 18,200 miles per year. High even for Americans.

    I'm really up there, then. I have had my Prius for just over a year and have over 26,000 miles on it.

    And, I walk or bicycle to work!
