…One more way you can do your part to help protect the environment! In the past few years, many vehicle repair and auto service businesses have been working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and “green” certification programs such as Energy Star and EPA Green Power Partnership to lower energy use, prevent pollution and reduce their carbon footprints. But how do you know which automotive shops is verified “green,” and how do you find one? FindGreenGarage.com makes finding a green vehicle service shop in your area quick and easy! FindGreenGarage lets you choose a shop in your area that has been certified “green” by government, state, and local green authorities. FindGreenGarage is compatible with PCs, smartphones, tablets, and iPod Touch. All you need is an internet connection. To begin your nationwide search for a valid shop, just type in a zip code, then select the radius of your search area in miles from the pull-down menu. Hit enter, and a Google map will appear with certified green icons. As you click on each icon, an info bubble will pop up with information about the shop: type of service provided, name, location, phone number, the certifying authority, and the amount of Greenhouse Gas savings achieved to date. Hyperlinks take you to the shop’s website, the certifying authority website, and additional information about how green savings are calculated. The FindGreenGarage map contains all the functionality of Google Maps, including zoom features, terrain and satellite views, and driving directions. Now it’s easy to reduce your carbon footprint and support businesses in your community that are doing the right thing for the environment with FindGreenGarage.com.
