NPR visits BP's green gas station, the Helios "living laboratory"
The station collects rainwater for watering plants, contains lots of recycled materials in the structure, a sign made of cedar and LEDs. BP's page on the station says the unique store isn't a prototype for future BP expansions, but is instead a "'living laboratory' that uses green, eco-friendly innovations to give consumers a little better station experience."
