WHY BUY USED AUTO PARTS?
Buying used parts for your vehicle is a great way to help our planet. There are several reasons why.
The first reason
It reduces the demand for new parts and therefore saves the resources used in the manufacturing process.
The second reason
It helps keep old cars out of landfills, which significantly decreases contamination of soil and groundwater.
The third reason
Various metals and alloys that comprise frames and bodywork of cars and trucks can be recycled and reused in the future. That means less materials such as ore needs to be mined. In fact,recycling metal is over 70 percent more energy efficient than producing new steel.
Environmental experts estimate that building a new car causes nearly as much pollution as all of the car’s CO2 emissions throughout its life. As a result, keeping your older vehicle instead of buying a new one significantly contributes to protecting our natural habitat.
