The Green Insurance company is offering a 10 per cent discount on its car insurance to help consumers through what is statistically the most depressing day of the year.

For one day only, Monday 25 January, Green Insurance company car insurance customers can get 10 per cent off their premiums to cheer them up.

Today has been deemed ‘Blue Monday’ – the most depressing of all the days – by Dr Cliff Arnall, a researcher at Cardiff University; he bases his claim on the weather, debt levels, left over Christmas cheer wearing off, failed New Year’s Resolutions, low motivation and the sense of needing a change.

The Green Insurance Company is urging drivers to ‘go green’ on Blue Monday by choosing environmentally friendly car insurance, which offsets 100 per cent of customers’ emissions.

The Green Insurance Company has planted more than 300,000 trees since it opened for business in 2007, and will plant a further 120,000 trees in 2010. In total, it has offset almost 100,000 tonnes of CO2 to date.

Commenting on the one day special offer, Gaynor Wood, head of The Green car Insurance Company, said: “January can feel like a long month and we’d like to give motorists a reason to smile on what’s forecast to be a tough day.

“We’re proud to be able to offer motorists not only a discount on their car insurance policy but also the opportunity to have a positive impact on our environment.”
