We think we got to all the nooks and crannies of home, maybe even yard and garden…if we are overachievers we even cleared out desk drawers at work (how many dang salt packets, sporks, and sets of chopsticks do we really need?)…but here’s one many of us overlook…the ride.

Does your car need some Spring Cleaning lovin’? More than just a run through the car wash, but digging down to get the sticky pennies from between the seats, dumping the receipts and mint wrappers, and doing a deep dive into your drive.

The Environmental Difference Smart Cars Actually Make

Smart Design, Smart Car

Smart cars are designed with an aim of minimizing their impact on the ecological balance. The designers also work hard to improve all the components using an economic perspective where they utilize recycled and sustainable materials. The engineers also look focus on the ability to disassemble the cars, which allows individual parts to be replaced where necessary. This allows the discarded parts to be recycled making the car more than 95 percent recyclable.
