This summer, Sprint Nextel and Vespa USA have joined forces to launch “Green on the Go,” a mobile green awareness tour in honor of Sprint‟s Buyback program and Vespa USA‟s Vespanomics programs. The second stop is Los Angeles, followed by Seattle, Chicago, Boston and New York.Los Angeles Sprint Vespa “Green on the Go” Tour details:
