As the Big Three car rental companies in the United States begin expanding their fleets to include hybrid and electric-powered cars, one small independently owned business in Maui is earning accolades for their “green” approach. Claiming to be the most environmentally-friendly rental car company in the world, Bio-Beetle was recently named one of three winners of Green America’s “People & Planet” award, according to Pacific Business News. This award recognizes “small businesses that take environmental and social considerations into their strategies and operations.”
Green America, a green economy organization, focused this quarter’s round of the awards on businesses that promote greener and more sustainable travel and transportation. In addition to the award, Bio-Beetle also received $5,000 in contest prize money.
