As the Green Plus team works with nearly 350 businesses in 15 states, it’s always exciting to see the businesses you wouldn’t naturally think of as ‘green’ demonstrating great leadership in sustainable business. Over the past three years, we have been privileged to work with Marc Pons, owner of Chapel Hill Tire Car Care Center, as he has transformed his operations into a model of environmental innovation and helped his customers save money, extend the life of their automobiles, and dramatically reduce their impact on the environment.

During July, Marc is offering a $10 discount on an Environmentally Friendly Oil change and sponsoring a 6k trail run to maintain Carolina North Forest. If you live in the NC Triangle, please support this Certified Green Plus business and take advantage of this great offer. Check out Marc’s note, below (ps – you can find Chapel Hill Tire Car Care Center on Facebook and follow their team on Twitter @ChapelHillTire).

Our Commitment to Sustainability
When our customers asked for sustainable choices, we listened and brought them E.F.O. (Environmentally Friendly Oil), lead-free tire weights, energy-efficient NitroFill tire inflation system, carbon offsets on E.F.O oil changes to help reduce harmful greenhouse gases, a hybrid shuttle van, a solar powered automotive center, the recognition of being Green Plus Certified, and hybrid certification to maintain and repair most hybrid vehicles.

The Race to Sustainability
To further promote sustainability within our community we are sponsoring a 6K trail run to help maintain the Carolina North Forest. The Race to Sustainability is a celebration of local businesses’ and organizations’ efforts to improve sustainability within our community and state, as well as an opportunity to raise awareness of what everyone can do to help keep Carolina green. So help us and your community by telling your friends and neighbors about this special event. All proceeds will go to the Carolina North Forest Management’s efforts to maintain the Forest and to NC GreenPower’s efforts to improve North Carolina’s environment.

What is E.F.O.?
Environmentally Friendly Oil is synthetic blend motor oil that provides extra protection and performance. No new raw crude goes into the production of E.F.O. Recycled motor oil is re-refined which uses up to 85% less energy to produce than oil refined from crude and it is guaranteed to meet or exceed manufacturers’ warranty requirements. No conventional motor oil provides better engine wear protection for longer engine life than E.F.O.

What are the Benefits of E.F.O.?
• E.F.O. is guaranteed and exceeds manufacturers’ warranty requirements
• E.F.O. is a synthetic blend to provide extra protection and performance
• E.F.O. uses up to 85% less energy to produce than oil refined from crude
• E.F.O. conserves resources and reduces dependence on foreign crude
• E.F.O. benefits the environment because we donate $2 of each purchase to NCGreenPower to purchase carbon offsets.
To date we have purchased C02 offsets worth the equivalent of 1,764,129 miles not driven – 42,918 days not driven – 56,353 trees planted.

|——————–732,750 lbs——————–|
732,750 lbs of CO2 offsets to mitigate greenhouse gases

Is the Quality of Recycled Oil Really as Good as Oil Made From Crude Oil?
Yes. Both types of oils must meet the same exacting standards. E.F.O. exceeds the highest North American manufacturer’s standards for motor oil performance in gasoline engines. E.F.O.’s unique refining process produces recycled oils with exceptional purity and lubricating properties. No conventional motor oil provides better engine wear protection for longer engine life than E.F.O.
