By now, we all know we should be driving hybrid and electric cars. Or perhaps, not driving at all. But many of us don't have an extra $30 grand to spend on a green automobile. And not driving is not always an option.
Too often, when our cars starts making funny noises and cautionary lights on the dash stare us in the face, weâ€™re left at the mercy of mechanics to use whatever they deem appropriate for the job. Like a spark plug from Germany - um, hello carbon footprint?!
Enter Green Garage. The Boulder, CO business takes cars â€“ hybrid or not â€“ and makes them greener and more efficient. In their own words, â€œWe can make [your car] run farther on less. Less gas. Less electricity. Less emiisions. Less money. Less guilt.â€ Thatâ€™s a whole lotta less. Which, you know, makes us like them more. Sure, they use words like â€œCarhuggersâ€ (aka mechanics) and â€œSmileageâ€ but we don't hold that against them.
