According to Mother Nature Network, the Let's Be Frank and the Green Truck rank among ten of the food trucks cruising U.S. cities from Washington D.C. to Seattle, Washington that are the most eco-friendly. With their locally-soured, organic ingredients and nitrite, artificial flavor, color, filler and preservative-free wieners, sausages, and buns, Let's Be Frank, serves up, frankly, one of the best hot dogs in LA from their trailer and carts.

And Kogi who? One of the first of the "nouveau" food trucks to break the mold set by our beloved old school taco trucks was the Green Truck, whose fleet of on-the-go catering vehicles first caught our eye in early 2008. Serving up healthier, organic, and veggie-friendly fare, the Green Truck is made more eco-friendly since they prep in a solar-powered commissary, power their trucks with vegetable oil, and use biodegradable products for their packaging. Now branching out to New York, you may have seen this earth-loving truck make a special stop on a recent episode of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution.
