ecoigo is London’s environmentally conscious car service- the ecological alternative to taxi, minicab and private hire.

A premium service providing uncompromised travel at no extra cost to clients or the environment, with no sacrifice to standards whatsoever.

The idea behind ecoigo was to create something simple, involving no sacrifice, extra effort or expense that enabled someone to give back more than they took, demonstrating that environmental sustainability and commercial viability were not mutually exclusive, but complementary and, especially now, essential.

Every time clients use our service we give back more than we use. On an average journey, clients save more than 1kg of carbon dioxide, offset double any emissions, rescue or reforest over 1 square metre of tropical forest and with their complimentary bottle of water, provide someone in the developing world with clean water for a month at a not only competitive, but often times cheaper rate than traditional cab services.

In your everyday actions, without greater expense or sacrifice to service, you will, when you do something as simple as taking one of our cabs, instead of contributing to the problem, make an active, conscious decision to address the problem.

There is a long way to go before completely sustainable, zero emission ground transportation, but we’re doing the best we can and with the aid of our environmental policy advisor Pete Wilkinson- co-founder of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth, and support of our clients, we’re creating the best company we can and one that treats all it comes into contact with, be it the planet, employees or clients, with respect.

We pride ourselves on only the highest levels of service and our commitment to environmental issues and for every journey taken we offset double any emissions.

At ecoigo service, accountability and sustainability coexist. Cars are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

If you haven’t used us yet, why not give us a try? You’ve nothing to lose and potentially an awful lot to gain.

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
