Greener Vehicles

 -- Quote of the Day --

"Look not back in anger, nor forward in fear - but around you in awareness."

-- Positive Eco-News --

We hear a lot of bad news about the vehicle industry - but there are a lot of in-house changes going on in vehicle manufacture operations to celebrate. 

While there are likely many other vehicle manufacturers offering green options and green in-house activities, I'd like to highlight one that I read recently about in the Recycling Product Newsletter that a Volvo Truck can have as much as 1/3 of it’s weight in recycled metals. Some of the best and usable parts are sold, others are separated in bins for iron, aluminum, plastics, copper, brass and the like. They say that not one bolt or piece of wire, not one scrap of a used truck goes to the landfill when it hits their recycling centers. In doing so they’ve been able to refine the manufacturing of new trucks to eliminate time or labor issues involved in the recycling of the machine once it has reached it’s end of life.
