Join the Green Plus Team at Certified Green Plus Chapel Hill Tire Care Thursday, August 26 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. for the Chapel Hill – Carrboro Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours (click here for a radio piece on Chapel Hill Tire’s sustainability efforts).
In order to earn its Green Plus Certification, owner Marc Pons conducted an upgrade of one of his old garages to improve its environmental impact while saving the company money: “The sustainable retrofitting of the facility, built around 1905, included a solar panels system and three new state-of-the-art service bays, constructed of salvaged and recycled materials, where possible, and equipped with the latest automotive diagnostic equipment.
Other green features include insulated low-e windows, energy-efficient LED lighting, dual-flush toilets, interior finishes such as low-VOC paints, and reduced impervious surface landscaping with rainwater collection cistern, which not only beautifies the building but also reduces stormwater run-off. Pons introduced the Triangle to EFO (Environmentally Friendly Oil) for oil changes and NitroFill tire inflation system to boost tire efficiency and life and reduce tire waste.” Please click here for the full story from the News Herald.
