World Environment Day

This week, we’d like to take a few moments to recognize World Environment Day (WED). It was created by the United Nations Environment Assembly of the United Nations Environment Programme in 1972 and has since become a vehicle to raise awareness about the Earth and how individuals have the power to become agents of change within their communities and environments.

Quanz Auto Bodyis Committed to Going Green!

We try to do our part every day for the environment by using some of the most eco-friendly products that still offer the highest quality for your vehicle’s needs. We use products like BASF we use R-M® Onyx HD™ waterborne basecoat paint system. This provides your vehicle with a superior finish and reduces emissions by up to 90 percent.

We don’t stop there with being eco-friendly. We have also equipped all of our buildings with solar panels, helping us reduce our carbon footprint. Quanz Auto Body is a proud member of the NM Green Chamber of Commerce. Along with adding solar energy to the mix, we also recycling our cans, paper and plastic to be sure we’re not contributing to extra waste in the city’s landfill!

Ways you can help the Environment with your Car

You don’t have to have a hybrid or manual powered vehicle to be an eco-friendly driver. By properly tuning your car and keeping it well-maintained, you can get the most out of your vehicle. A few other tips to keep your transportation eco-friendly:

  • Plan your trips ahead of time so you are aware of the miles and stops you will be taking.
  • Keep your emissions up to date by having clean filters (fuel, oil and air).
  • Keep your tires properly inflated with adequate tread.
  • You can also carpool. By riding with friends or coworkers, there are fewer vehicles on the road, and this minimizes the impact on our environment.
