Businesses everywhere are slowly adopting Eco-friendly Techniques- A set of processes that aim to ensure that the damage inflicted on the planet through its activities, becomes minimal, if not non-existent. It is in keeping with this positive trend that Mothers Cab decided to do a radical rehaul- We have started to restore and recycle all of our used old vehicles! Why? Because, it saves from the heap of waste that gets accumulated every year and the pollution that comes with buying a new car.
It sounded really daunting at first, and many here were skeptical of the outcome. However, we decided to take the plunge, and do our bit to save Planet Earth. After all, Mother Cabs and Mother Nature are meant to help each other!
Why Reduce Carbon Footprints?
According to Carbon footprint of Nearly Everything, an invaluable guide to carbon emissions by Berners Lee, the contribution from the automobile manufacturing and allied industries to the environment is enormous. Even a small car can contribute to six tonnes of carbon emission in an average. This includes other greenhouse gases relative to the polluting potential of carbon dioxide.
Restoration Is Key To Saving The Planet
There is a general misunderstanding when the term “restoration” is used in relation to cars. Many people mistakenly associate the process with converting popular automobiles of yore. Restoration is not restricted to vintage cars alone. The term has a range of meanings. The process means to regain the lost glory of the vehicle. Some of the times your car would require a restoration would be:
The Result Of Restoring Our Cars
We are quite pleased of the results we have had with our own restoration attempts. Older models destined for the scrap yard, were given a total makeover! We had experts completely redo the cars, from the paint to the engines, making sure that our cars lived up to their former days of glory. And, they have! We have had remarkable success with our restored cars. Our attempts have captured the imagination of eco-friendly clients, who now specifically call for our restored cars!
Once the restored cars began to ply the streets, we racked our brains for the next best idea to incorporate into our efforts to save Mother Nature, and we found it in innovative Container Modification companies like Supertech Industries. Companies like these are a Godsend, as they convert useless shipping containers into stylish spaces, to be used as homes or business premises. This got us thinking, and we came up with yet another eco-friendly solution. Our restored cars need a home to come to, so, why not get a refurbished shipping container made into a sturdy garage?
The work is still in-progress, but we hope to have it up and running in no time. More about that will be shared in the posts to come!
