Why Being a Green Shop Matters!

Why Being a Green Shop Matters!

We don’t often think of the environmental consequences of the shops to whom we give our business.

We all want clean air to breathe and freshwater to drink from, finding a green repair shop near you will help the environment for years to come. Many auto repair shops use solvent-based fluids and cleaners, which are harmful to both employees as well as the environment. There are other options out there, and a green-mechanic is in the know. Using water-based liquids and cleaners are risk-free and is not corrosive or damaging to your car. A green shop can employ the resources to recycle products like antifreeze and refrigerant gasses without harming the environment. The entire facility is environmentally sensitive.
