A ripening vine

The greentomato idea was conceived by Tom Pakenham in 2004, whilst he was working as a lawyer in the City of London. It sprung out of Tom’s perception that not enough was being done to give people convenient and affordable ways of reducing the environmental impact of their everyday lives.

Tom was joined in 2005 by his friend and co-ex-lawyer, Jonny Goldstone. Together they founded greentomatocars, the first manifestation of the mission. greentomatocars rapidly attracted positive media and customer interest, through which it was able to grow into a thriving business that continues to do exactly what it had been set up to do - i.e. provide the most environmentally friendly taxi transport solution for travelling Londoners. 

In 2007, the greentomatokit was launched. A pack containing multiple water, waste and energy saving items, the greentomatokit is a starting point for people to begin their journey towards having a lower impact on the planet.

The costs of preventing climate change are so high it will ruin our economy.


Truth: The potential cost of preventing climate change is high however, it pales into insignificance when compared with the cost of taking no action. A recent report by Lord Stern, and his fellow advisers, found the cost of not tackling climate change was between 5% - 20% of global GDP. Comparitively, the cost of limiting the worst aspects of climate change are lower than 1% of global GDP.
