It may not look too streamlined, but this converted CNG, which is what Bangladeshis call what others might call Tuktuks, referring to the most common fuel for the vital member of the public transportation service, deriving from the Compressed Natural Gas, a fuel of which the country has large supplies, is one of four operating in sun drenched Cox’s Bazar. With a solar panel mounted on its roof, it may not look too elegant, but it powers the vehicle in the most environmentally friendly way possible! It demonstrates, once again, that the ordinary people of the country take the environment more seriously than do the drivers of unnecessarily large BMWs and Land Cruisers..including UN and other NGOs..
Needless to say, our friends at Tiger Tours (www.tigertoursbd.com) have the telephone numbers of the environmentally aware owners of these machines, to support their determined efforts to make the growth of tourism in
as socially and environmentally friendly as possible. Bangladesh
