Going Green: Giving a Gift to the Environment

The holiday season reminds us of the gifts that we have been given: our friends and family, our business and customers, and the ability to enjoy it all in a beautiful place like Albuquerque. Because we have been given so much at Quanz Advanced Auto Body, we enjoy the opportunity to give back to Albuquerque and our environment by using eco-friendly products.

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

Everything that we do impacts the planet. And we’ve already begun to see some of the negative effects that certain products and practices can have on the environment. In order to reduce our carbon footprint and help our environment, we:

  • Recycle. We partner with Earth Day to recycle metals and cardboard we no longer need to keep many products out of landfills. We also recycle tires, batteries, oil, coolant and paint.
  • Use green products. Many of the products we use, including our waterborne paint system, reduce toxic waste that could pollute our environment.
  • Generate energy. The 93.84 kW solar array we installed on our roof generates enough clean energy to significantly reduce the carbon dioxide produced by our operations.

With these changes, we believe that we give back to the environment right here in Albuquerque, reducing our carbon footprint and leaving our community a cleaner place for future generations.

Give Back to the Environment

This holiday season, and during the rest of the year, we challenge you to give back to the environment in some way—organize  a recycling policy at work or remember to turn the water off while you’re brushing your teeth. These little changes can collectively have a huge positive impact to mitigate pollution, deforestation and other serious negative consequences on our environment that we’ve seen.
