Ways to keep it green

In a world where environmental consciousness is becoming increasingly important, every individual has a role to play in reducing their carbon footprint. At DeBoer's Auto, we believe in not only providing top-notch automotive services but also promoting sustainable practices for a greener planet. In a recent conversation with Tina, she shared some insightful tips on how we can drive in a more eco-friendly manner.

Hybrid Vehicles: Consider hybrid vehicles when making your next car purchase. These vehicles utilize a combination of gasoline and electric power, significantly reducing emissions and fuel consumption compared to traditional gasoline-powered cars.

Maintain Proper Tire Pressure: Ensuring your tires are properly inflated not only improves fuel efficiency but also extends the lifespan of your tires. This simple practice can save fuel and reduce CO2 emissions.

Switch to Electric Vehicles (EV): For those ready to leap towards a fully electric future, switching to an EV can drastically reduce your carbon footprint. With advancements in technology, EVs offer a viable and sustainable alternative to traditional gasoline-powered cars. At DeBoer's we have an EV for loaner purposes, so next time you are in for a service, ask if the Chevy Bolt is available so you can get a feel for driving an EV. 

SCHEDULE APPOINTMENTConsider Public Transportation or Carpooling: Opting for public transportation or carpooling not only reduces traffic congestion but also decreases emissions per person. It's a win-win for both the environment and your wallet.

Cycling: Embracing cycling as a mode of transportation for short distances not only reduces emissions but also promotes a healthier lifestyle. Consider biking to work or nearby destinations whenever possible.

Reuse and Recycle: Extending the life of reusable materials beyond their intended use. Whether it's using reusable plastics or recycling materials, every small effort counts towards reducing waste and protecting our planet.

While individual actions may seem small, collectively they have a significant impact on our planet. By adopting these practices and making conscious choices, we can all contribute to a greener, more sustainable future for generations to come.

At DeBoer's Auto, we're committed to not only providing exceptional automotive services but also promoting eco-friendly driving practices. Contact us today to find out some other ways we can help drive towards a cleaner, healthier planet, one mile at a time.
