More importantly, sponsoring Project EVIE will allow you to make a deposit in the equity of your brand beyond the life cycle of any particular campaign — not just through grassroots engagement, but through a tangible investment in corporate responsibility and a sustainable future for all inhabitants of this planet. In short, it is the right thing to do.

In addition to helping make the world a better place and curbing carbon consumption, Project EVIE can offer a great deal of positive borrowed landscape to your brand for a much, much smaller investment than the cost of traditional advertising. We are a green grassroots organization composed of young, proactive passionate believers. We are adventurous, daring and perennially cool. And, we are deeply entrenched in the world of social media. We will be embarking on the quintessential right-of-passage: the lure of the open-road and of destinations not yet realized; the exuberance and wanderlust of the heart melded with environmental awareness. Your association with Project EVIE can have a profoundly positive effect on your brand image — when our message reaches the ears of our audience, it will be together with your name.

the kinds of exposure we can offer

National and International Media Appearances
Project EVIE will be making as many relevant media appearances as possible as we crisscross the globe with our message of sustainable emissions free transportation. Similar expeditions in recent years have successfully reached audiences of tens of millions of viewers without engaging in environmental activism. Given our unique combination of adventure and ecological appeal, we expect equal or greater exposure from such channels.

Print Project EVIE has secured write-ups in several major print publications including environmental, travel and editorial coverage. Our PR staff will continue to engage with the press in the US and internationally for the duration of the expedition and after its completion.

Television Several US, European and Middle Eastern television stations have expressed interest in covering Project EVIE, and the response and interest we are getting is continuing to grow as we reach out to additional networks.
