Weâ€™re about to launch a brand new eco service â€“ itâ€™s something weâ€™ve been working on for a couple of years now and Iâ€™m quite excited about it.
Itâ€™s a green mobile phone service, which weâ€™re calling Ecotalk.
Weâ€™ll power the entire Ecotalk operation â€“ all calls, texts and data â€“ with 100% green energy from the wind and sun. We think it will be the first carbon free mobile phone service of its kind in Britain, if not the world.
We'll be following some of the key principles of Ecotricity â€“ such as our ethical pricing policy. Weâ€™ll have a simple range of monthly bundles to choose from, with no exit fees, and everyone will always have access to the latest best price for each bundle.
Weâ€™re also adapting our 'bills into mills' model â€“ where we harness our customersâ€™ energy bills to build new wind and sun mills. With Ecotalk, weâ€™re going to harness our customersâ€™ mobile phone bills and use the revenue to buy land and â€˜give it back to natureâ€™ â€“ creating vitally needed nature reserves. Our main focus will be to create habitats for bees, and in the process weâ€™ll create new habitats for all kinds of insects, birds and mammals.
The other key part of what Ecotricity does, which we intend to mirror with Ecotalk, is give the very best customer service.
Iâ€™m writing partly to let you know what weâ€™re planning and partly to ask for your help â€“ if you could spare a few minutes to share your thoughts about Ecotalk by completing this short survey here - weâ€™d really appreciate it.
Thanks for your support.
P.S. Just to let you know, this survey closes on Tuesday 12 April.
