Sustainable Automotive

Efficient and Eco- Friendly Services Offered

Earthling Automotive was founded on an environmental promise: make auto repair eco-friendly, the same way EVs/hybrids do for cars.

Whether it is our facility design, energy usage, shop supplies or equipment, Earthling Automotive makes all our choices with sustainability and environmental protection in mind.


We buy and maintain energy-efficient appliances. We prefer electric tools over pneumatics; they are charged by solar, are more efficient, and are quieter. For filling tires and the occasional stubborn fastener, we have a high-efficiency air compressor.

Shop Supplies

All of our oil services come with re-refined or petroleum-free lubricants. Aerosols are strongly avoided; instead of “brake clean,” we use pure acetone, purchased in bulk, in a recyclable metal container, applied topically (with rags) rather than spray.

Zero-Waste Goal

Our online, paperless administration Shop-Ware—custom built by our previous garage, the first of its kind for the industry—eliminates piles of paper and toner. Other green businesses get favored nation status (from New Resource Bank to Green Postcards). We bias purchases locally and in bulk and recycle nearly everything—all fluids, metal, packaging, and parts—working with suppliers towards a zero-waste goal.


Whether it’s the planet or your car, believe in conserving resources. We replace only what a car needs and are here to help you extend the life of your vehicle.

Working With Us

Last but not least, we replace only what a car needs. We’re not trying to sell you any unnecessary care or parts replacement. We want your vehicle maintenance experience to be world-class, but more than that, we don’t want to be wasteful. With your time or with our work. Better service means better environmental stewardship. Who’d have thought?


I have been bringing my hybrid cars to this garage (previously as Luscious Garage) since it opened. I have two hybrids and both have been serviced many times over the years. I couldn’t be happier with the service I have received. Their pricing is competitive and you can’t beat them for hybrid knowledge!

Love a place with online booking. Bonus the location had ample parking, quick check in, a clean comfortable waiting area, and text updates along the way…Job was completed quickly and I was notified right away. Walked away paying only a few hundred dollars vs the $1300 I was told I’d need to pay at the dealer.

I’m a longtime customer of Luscious Garage who’s made the switch to Earthling Automotive. I appreciate being treated like a human and I’m confident this team will keep my Prius running for another 100k+ at a fair & transparent price.



|San Francisco, CA

I highly recommend Earthling Automotive. They were very transparent on the repairs needed and provided timely updates and reports on every step. They diagnosed the root cause of the issue in my car, and fixed it with full resolution. They are very trustworthy and I will be here every time I need car services.

I appreciate the diversity and friendliness of their staff.
