Boulay’s Garage Recycles Plastic: A Green Automotive Repair Shop

Three empty plastic containers

What you are looking at three empty plastic containers, an empty engine oil, windshield wash and brake fluid container. Why are you looking at three empty plastic containers? Part of the reason is all of the plastic litter you see here on the beach pictured in this post.  Years ago my wife and I went on a cruise to Bermuda, if we knew then what we know now we

would not have stepped on that ship. Shortly after we returned from our trip we watched an episode of Oprah with our jaws on the floor about the amount of plastic and other trash that is STILL allowed to be dumped into our oceans by cruise ships.  Not to mention other sources of trash not mentioned.Their is a  huge  90 foot deep  miles wide swirling vortex of plastic, bags containers, six pack holders you name it just plain trash in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Now last time I checked we rely on the oceans plankton to make oxygen for us to breath? What about all the fish and other aquatic life that try’s to consume this trash and dies as a result?  Some of us like to eat sea food to right? Please do me a favor and do a web search and enter in your browser  “Plastic in the  ocean” and inform yourself, and be forewarned it may disgust you.  My hope is that maybe one person at a time can make a difference and I am starting with myself. At my auto repair shop “Boulay’s Garage” I will recycle every plastic container that comes into my shop. Along with waste oil, anti freeze and all other fluids that may be replaced. Just think for a minute about this one example to follow; There are over 1 billion vehicles in the world, every one likely has a windshield washer tank.  It took a 1 gallon plastic jug to fill all of these vehicles for the first time. Where did those empty plastic jugs go to a landfill, the ocean, or recycled? Please educate yourself on this subject, and above all please recycle! If you already do recycle thank you.
