Keep Bio-Beetle ECO friendly rental cars going

ECO friendly rental cars should be available everywhere! 
Please help us save our Maui Business and look into expanding!

We started Bio Beetle ECO rental cars  in 2003 on Maui Hawaii.

We ONLY rent the greenest cars available. Currently we offer biodiesel cars, electric cars, and gas hybrids. 

But more than just green cars, EVERYTHING about the business, and our personal lives are as green as possible!  Bio-Beetle believes in doing as little harm to the environment, people, and animals around us as possible. Ethical living and sustainability is our driving force. We live by our beliefs and we will only do business in the same way. We have never taken a paycheck from Bio-Beetle, volunteering all of our time.


The coronavirus shut us down. We lost 99% of rentals and income, and calls for future rentals are at a standstill, but the bills aren’t!  All of our personal income comes from our recycling company, that is also struggling at this time.

We are also the primary sponsors of Save An Animal  , a 501 c3 non profit to help animals, and we run a cat sanctuary for unwanted cats. The cats still need to be fed.

Is there a future for ECO friendly cars?

We need funding just to get us month to month.  We need to pay down this debt that is piling up, pay the regular bills, make sure the cat sanctuary and Save An Animal is funded for the future, and decide what Bio-Beetle ECO Rental Cars should do going forward.

We have always wanted to expand but have been too busy running the recycling business and Save An Animal to find time to do much else. We get a lot of verbal support, but we really can’t do it alone anymore.

Lots of people say they want to be able to rent an ECO friendly car wherever they go, so we are putting this out there. Do YOU want to be able to rent a green car when you travel? Do you think it is important to know what your money is supporting? To be able to choose to work with ethical companies? 


Please donate, and help us continue doing what we can to reduce the impacts of climate change and make our planet more sustainable.

 EMAIL US If you are able to help in even a larger way, perhaps volunteer, help with marketing, SEO, help expand, or want to be an actual part of the business, please contact us. We are open to ideas, suggestions, and just words of encouragement!
We hope to see and meet all of our donors on Maui some time.


Bio-Beetle ECO Rental Cars was started by Shaun Stenshol and Pamela Miedtke-Wolf. We wanted to show the world that ECO friendly cars are available right now, and can be had for basically no changes to the norm, except changes for the better.

Besides only renting the greenest cars, Bio-Beetle uses earth friendly coolants, synthetic engine oil and non toxic cleaners and will always choose the most natural, biodegradable, earth friendly, animal friendly, options available. We loan out free coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards, beach toys, etc to reduce consumerism and increase our client’s enjoyment plus we encourage local / green outings and eateries. We use 100% recycled or tree free paper, support local businesses, buy organic when possible, etc…  We live off grid, in a small bamboo house with solar, water catchment, and large gardens, and are strict vegetarians. We created a sanctuary for homeless cats and currently sponsor over 100 cats. We run a recycling company, and are involved with other local groups working for the greater good. Etc…

We have never taken a paycheck from bio-beetle. We always volunteered 100% our time because we believe so strongly in protecting the planet and those on it.

We believe in transparency. That we all should be aware of where our money goes, what we are really supporting with those dollars. Bio-Beetle believes in knowledge, peace, and reason. There is no place for prejudice, discrimination, ignorance, nor cruelty in our world. We all make choices, everyday, that have an impact on the world around us. We ALL should do ALL we can to protect this place we call home and always LOOK for the greenest versions, from the greenest people, and to actually care about what they do today! Is there a better, greener, nonviolent alternative? Then do it.

Bio-Beetle ECO rental cars makes it easy for people who rent a car on Maui to do the right thing, if they find us. Yet we believe a person should be able to rent an ECO friendly car wherever they go, whether in Hawaii or in another state, or even another country.  Plus it is right that ethical companies be supported, not just those companies who may offer a green item in addition to their eco UNfriendly line.
We have 15 years experience in the business and its time to go beyond just a hobby. Do we stay local or expand as much as possible? We can't do it alone.

With the right support we can make it happen!
