80edays Fan t-shirts

80edays #erally4earth is on a mission to prove that the EV technology is mature and ready to become a driver’s first choice with its eco-sustainable outlook and infrastructure. The rally organizers, ambassadors and partners are joining hands in a bid to offset the greenhouse impact generated from the event. A cooperation on a carbon-offset reforestation project with myclimate, the 80edays official eco-partner, is highlighting the critical social issues that are emerging as a result of increased pollution and rapid deforestation.

Make your personal contribution to join us in our effort. Eco Partner myclimate will plant a tree in Nicaragua for each 80edays fan t-shirt you buy.
