The Oprah Magazine
GreenCab Managing Director, Lynn Maggott, is featured as an Eco
Entrepreneur in the March 2012 edition of the Oprah Magazine. The article is
part of Oprah's "4-Step Self Awareness Workbook" about engaging in the
business of who you are meant to be and how this leads to being "more awake,
alive and ready to play a vital part in the workings of your world". Something
that the Green Ladies at GreenCab are no strangers to.

GREENCAB SEQUESTRATION EVENTS
GreenCab sequestrates all its transport emissions on behalf of its clients on a
bi-annual basis. The associated Sequestration Event serves as an opportunity
to award our growing pool of loyal clients with 6-monthly Green Transport
Certificates. The Certificates certify, in conjunction with the SA Carbon Protocol,
that the service is carbon-neutral. Events are both informative and entertaining
as this picture illustrates where GreenCab staff joins one of the speakers and

show to drivers of large fuel guzzling vehicles. Current events
