How Joe’s Auto Sales is Working to Help the Environment
In addition to presenting the best Earth Day events in Indianapolis to our readers and customers, we are striving to become more environmentally efficient in every aspect of our business. As always, we do a thorough inspection of each vehicle before reselling so that they run as efficiently as possible. We also recycle many of our auto parts when we are finished with them. Around our office, we are in the process of establishing a recycling program and installing LED lights, which will reduce our light energy consumption by 90 percent!
Happy Earth Day from all of us here at Joe’s Auto Sales!
