Earth Day 2014 – Are you Getting in on the Action?

Every year, April 22 comes and goes. While some people overlook the importance of this day, others know it as one thing: Earth Day.

On this day, over one billion people throughout 190 countries take action in an attempt to improve and save the earth in their own special way. It doesn’t matter where you live or how much time you have, it is easy to get involved.

At FAR, we know that Earth Day is extremely important. We realize that there are steps everybody can take to improve the environment. For us, this means promoting changes within the automotive industry, including how people drive and maintain their vehicles.

Here are three tips to consider this Earth Day:

1. Car pool. Do you drive to work alone? Do you have the opportunity to car pool with coworkers? While this may be a change to your daily routine, it is one that can help better the environment. Not to mention the fact that it will allow you to save money.

2. Properly dispose of oil and other engine fluids. If you are going to change your own oil or other fluids, make sure you dispose of these properly. The last thing you want to do is dump these down the drain or into a sewer.

3. Buy a car that is easy on the environment. You may not be in the market right now, but when you are in the future you should consider buying one that will have a minimal impact on the environment, such as a hybrid or electric powered vehicle.

Earth Day 2014 is right around the bend, and we are beginning to spread the word about what you can do to help save the environment. Remember, every little bit counts. Don’t be afraid to get in on the action this year!
