Looking for an eco-friendly, green insurance company? Many insurers specialise in eco-friendly, hybrid and low emission cars and offer discounts.
More drivers are switching to low emission cars to save on tax and fuel. Green insurance and the lower premiums that come with it can save you even more money. Some green insurance companies also offer to offset your carbon emissions or contribute some of their profits to good causes.
So, if you like the idea of doing your bit for the environment by recycling, using renewable energy and driving a hybrid or low emissions car then why not see if you could also save money whilst helping the planet?
