Another green post. As I was preparing my recent article on enjoying our "Green City in the Sun", I saw this very nice green animal:
I had never seen such a strange animal before. Apparently, it is one of the new Toyota Prius Eco Cabs. Eco Cabs is a new fleet of hybrid taxis in Nairobi that provide customers with high standard services and the option of driving green in style. Eco Cabs has been launched to showcase the concept of green transport and to inspire other businesses to make a meaningful transformation towards greener processes. Eco Cabs produce over 60% less emissions compared with other vehicles with the same engine size when driving within the city. The cabs are designed to symbolize the green concept: they are all painted green with a green leaf signifying how green the cabs are.
Ironically, the Eco-cab was parked at one of the petrol stations in Nairobi... what a nice contrast!
I think we should all promote such green businesses. Next time I need a taxi, I already know where to go. And you? What are you doing to combat climate change?
