6 Earth-Friendly Tips
If you drive a car, you are already contributing a lot towards environmental damage. Efforts are continuously being made to minimize the harm cars do to the ecology. But there are certain things you can do to minimize your carbon footprint on the environment. Here are the top 6 tips that can make your car more earth-friendly.
1. When your car’s engine is efficient and maintained, it conserves fuel and performs better. Take your car for regular maintenance appointments, and fix an issue as soon as you notice it. An ill-performing engine will burn more fuel, and thus harm the environment.
2. Check your tires, and make sure that there is correct air pressure inside them. If they are under-inflated, your car’s engine will need to work harder, and thus will consume more fuel.
3. Make sure that your car’s air conditioning system is serviced by professional AC technicians only. They have all the right tools and equipment to deal with your air conditioning system, and recycle any automotive refrigerants. If you have an old air conditioning system, it might have ozone depleting chemicals that may release into the atmosphere, and thus harm the environment. So, contact an air conditioning technician today, and get the problem fixed immediately.
4. If you have an old car, its switches might be using toxic mercury for activating trunk, hood, glove-box lights etc. These are environment damaging parts, which can be removed and recycled, and replaced with newer non-toxic mechanical switches. There are several organizations that volunteer to replace these switches for you.
