“The motor industry is changing and Swinford Motors and Toyota have been ahead of that change. From the launch of the Prius, the game changing car which brought hybrid technology into the mainstream to the recent Carolla Hybrid, Toyota are leading the way in providing lower emissions technology.

Moving beyond the cars, we have been looking where we could reduce our own environmental footprint. Reducing our energy use is an obvious way of reducing emissions, but until we learned about eLight and LED lighting, we didn’t realise it was possible to save so much energy. Reducing our energy use and costs by nearly 2/3rds, with no up-front costs, that was an easy decision to make.”
