We’re blazing a trail that’s clean and green by being a positive force for change in a dirty industry.
Ahhhhhh, don’t you just love the smell of fresh mountain air? We do too. But the air can’t stay fresh if your car is spurting out all kinds of unnecessary junk into the atmosphere. We work with you to keep ol’ faithful running clean and green. And guess what else? Breakdowns are expensive. Preventative maintenance is not only good for the environment, but good for the wallet, too!
We’re constantly working to lower our impact on the environment and save you money over the long term, whether it’s researching biodegradable solvents or improving our systems to reduce waste. You might say we’re green-obsessed. Here are a few of our environmentally friendly initiatives:
Eco-friendly Solvents and Cleaners
Chemicals are sooooo last year. We’re always on the prowl for cleaner, more natural products, from non-toxic degreaser to biodegradable gloves.
We offer EcoPower oil, recycled and refined from reclaimed motor oil. It protects your engine and the environment and meets or exceeds the toughest North American standards for engine protection. Compared to conventional motor oil, it takes up to 85% less energy to produce EcoPower.
Bulk Oil and Washer Fluid
Plastic is yucky. By purchasing our oil and washer fluid in bulk, we can keep hundreds of plastic jugs out of the waste system.
Lead-free Wheel Weights
A major source of lead pollution comes from lead wheel weights falling off of cars and trucks and landing in our streams and waterways. That’s bad news for critters and humans alike. We are committed to using 100% non-lead wheel weights.
Regardless of the source of fuel (gasoline, ethanol, diesel or hybrid), energy is needed to keep your vehicle moving forward. Tire rolling resistance can be lowered by optimizing a tire’s weight, internal structure, tread design and tread compound, making it possible to reduce fuel consumption, CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions. That’s just how we roll. Ask us about greener tire options for your car!
Biodegradable Parts Washer
We have the coolest parts washer. Instead of using varsol (skull and crossbones, yuck!) like a standard parts washer, our BioCircle parts washer utilizes a biodegradable solution that smells like green apples. Yum! It’s effective and it’s safe.
$1 For Every Oil Change to Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC)
Every time we change the oil in a vehicle, we donate $1 to NCC. They do great work protecting our wild places for generations to come!
Education and Proactive Maintenance
We believe in education and proactive maintenance, because a well-maintained vehicle is considerably less harmful to the environment than a sad, neglected one. We can all be a little greener, just by taking really good care of our cars.
