Malibu Country Mart Goes Electric (Cars)

The Malibu Country Mart invites the community to a ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil the shopping center's new electric vehicle charging station, on Saturday, Aug. 20, from 2-4:30 p.m.
The ceremony, which will take place at 2 p.m. at the new station, next to the Ralph Lauren store, will be followed at 2:30 p.m. by a reception with live music and food from John’s Garden and Howdy’s, in the courtyard in front of Howdy’s.
“Come learn about the new wave of electric cars, and be sure to check out the outdoor showroom featuring a Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf, CODA, and Tesla,” the press release states.
“One of our principal goals is to improve the environmental quality of our community.
“The new electric vehicle charging station is just one piece of our Green Initiative Program, which also incorporates plant-based biodegradable cleaners, a comprehensive composting and recycling program, and a biofuels program to convert restaurant grease into biodiesel. We strive to create a clean and safe place for future generations to shop, play, and dine.”
Ribbon-cutting speakers include: Ed Begley, Jr., actor and eco-advocate; Paul Scott, Co-Founder of Plug In America and Nissan LEAF Specialist; Rod Bergen, President of Solar West International; Michael Koss, General Partner of the Malibu Country Mart; and Paul Glenney, Director of EV Solutions Aerovironment.
