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.

Climate change is caused by increased solar activity, not humans.


Truth: The sun provides almost all the energy in the earth’s climate, so it clearly has a strong influence on the climate. Prior to 1960’s changes in solar activity and global climate were shown to be strongly proportional.

However, in the past 35 years, studies have shown solar activity to be diminishing, whilst the climate has shown a steady warming trend. This indicates that any recent change in global warming must be attributable to a different source. In fact, it is likely that a decline in solar activity is having a slowing (negative) effect on global temperature rise. Conversely, the warming trend over the past 35 years is directly proportional to recent rises in carbon dioxide emissions.
