One wiregrass business is helping its customers “Go Green.”
American Lube Fast offers service with a smile and is lending a helping hand to Mother Nature.
“It's an eco-friendly oil, it's going to help the environment,”
Max Oliver is the district manager for American Lube Fast. He says "Eco Power" is essentially recycled motor oil.
“Eco power oil is a synthetic blend motor oil that's made from reclaimed oil. They boil it back down to its base principles and take out all the impurities and everything out of it,”
The U.S. military and postal service have been using this oil for years and on the back of the label it says this oil uses 85% less energy to produce and reduces greenhouse gases by 80%.
Oliver adds this new product is not only affordable; the supply is always being replenished.
“We're actually able to give it to our customers at a lower cost than what your traditional synthetic oils cost. Plus Eco Power oil can be re-refined over and over again so it's an indefinite supply,”
Oliver says Eco Power is putting more Americans to work and less pollution into the environment.
“The oil is re-refined here in the United States, so it does decrease our dependence on foreign oil; it creates jobs here in the United States,”
“Most reclaimed oil is burned off as fuel and what that does it emits a lot of greenhouse gases and heavy metals into the atmosphere and by using the eco power oil you're eliminating and you get rid of that pollution,”
An Eco Power oil change costs $31.99 and has been available to the public now for about two months.
