EAGLE COUNTY, COLO. — Green Limousine in Vail, Colo. runs its Ford Excursion fleet strictly on bio-diesel fuel, organic champagne, and snacks, and cleans its vehicles with only environmentally friendly products.

“A lot of people we serve don’t realize you can do this with bio-diesel, thinking it’s only something hippies in California use,” said owner Seth Bounds. “It’s something I believe in with my whole heart.” Bounds even has his uniform cleaned at Avon Natural Cleaners.

The two-year-old company is starting to see steady clientele and does most of its business in airport transfers and people who prefer not to drive the mountain roads. Bounds said his clientele are not specifically in search of a green limousine service but become educated during the experience. Green Limousines’ bio-diesel supplier, Blue Sun Bio Diesel, said use of its product is growing in Colorado.
