ARA Launches New Consumer Green Recycled Parts Website
The Automotive Recyclers Association (ARA) announces the launch of the Green Recycled Parts TM website at www.greenrecycledparts.com
to promote the positive economic and environmental impact of recycled automotive parts.
The environmental benefits of automotive recycling are notable any day but most especially on Earth Day. "On an annual basis recycling automobiles in the U.S. provides enough steel to produce almost 13 million new vehicles, saves an estimated 85 million barrels of oil and reduces greenhouse gases associated with the manufacturing of new or replacement automobile parts", says Michael E. Wilson CEO of the ARA .
Recycled automotive parts are also 20 to 80 percent less expensive than comparable new parts. "However, far too often, consumers are not aware of the options available to them when it comes to vehicle repair, most notably the economic and environmental benefits of recycled automotive parts", said Wilson.
“The new Green Recycled Parts™ website educates consumers about the benefits of recycled parts and links consumers, repair facilities and insurance companies with a network of automobile recyclers across the country. "For the first time, this website also provides consumers with a specific place to go to learn about cost effective, environmentally friendly part options before they decide on a repair", said Wilson.
Founded in 1943, the Automotive Recyclers Association represents an industry dedicated to the efficient removal and reuse of automotive parts, and the proper disposal of inoperable motor vehicles and their hazardous fluids. With programs such as the Certified Auto Recycler program, and other partnerships with automotive manufacturers, automotive recycling will continue to provide consumers with quality, low cost alternatives for vehicle replacement parts, while preserving natural resources and our environment for tomorrow.
