A former Honolulu attorney who in 2012 started the first “green” cab company in Hawaii is using his vacation to give back to the community. David Jung and his younger brother Scott will walk more than 130 miles around Oahu for their Indiegogo campaign “Saving the Planet One Mile at a Time for Our Keiki.” The trek, which begins and ends at the EcoCab headquarters at 3060 Ualena St., is a benefit for Shriners Hospital for Children. A little more than $600 was raised as of Monday onindiegogo.com. The event begins at 6 a.m. Aug. 22 and is expected to take about six days.
EcoCab has a fleet of 44 cabs and 120 employees using Hyundai Sonata hybrid cars helping to lower gas emissions and the consumption of fuel.
