Toyota have just release plans for a new electric vehicle which is uber cute and can be seen below.

It’s only a little car which wont have a huge range, but it will be fully electric. You can read more here.

What we like about it is that it’s the same philosophy as rentoid. We are all about finding a better way of doing things. Using technology to have a positive impact on peoples lives and the environment. Kudos Toyota.

Water prices up in Australia!

January 5, 2009

It’s no secret we have a penchant for all things environmental here at rentoid.com

But I gotta say we I find it slightly ironic when we are encouraged to reduce our use of water, to be careful with our precious resource. Then we achieve this and we are rewarded with a price increase for our good behaviour. What the? I don’t have an issue with the prices rises, just the context and reason for raising them – profit. I’d rather it be to further reduce consumption. You can read more about it here.

This is just nonsensical beauracracy and sending the wrong message. Boo hiss from the team at rentoid.

Critical Mass – Bike Ride

November 30, 2008

Critical Mass is a bike ride which happens in cities around the world for a whole heap of good reasons you can see by clicking here, or hereWords from there website:

“CM is intended to be a celebration, not an opportunity to cause trouble. Those who want to try to tie up traffic as much as possible and be confrontational with motorists are missing the point. We can assert our right to the road without being rude about it. Focus on the ride, not on the cars that also happen to be on the road.”

Here’s some photos a rentoid team member snapped on Friday in the Melbourne CBD as the cyclists zoomed by.

Rentoid is stoked that we have a city of people with the initiative to get this eco meme happening. Oh, and if you need to rent a bike for the next ride, we’ve got plenty you can see by clicking here…
