Why A Dutch Couple Is Driving This Solar-Powered Vehicle To The South Pole

By Kristin Hunt

On Nov.26, Edwin and Liesbeth ter Velde will embark on an adventure that combines zero-waste living, solar energy, and freezing cold temperatures. The Dutch couple plans to drive their self-built, solar-powered vehicle from a base camp in Antarctica to the South Pole to encourage people to ditch single-use plastics.
