Earth Day Tips To Help Save The Planet

Earth Day Tips To Help Save The Planet

BAY CITY, Mich., – On April 22nd, Earth Day, we'll be celebrating our amazing planet! Now more than ever, we're aware of our impact on the environment. The good news is that Chevy vehicles are reducing emissions and are becoming more fuel efficient! Today serves as a great reminder for us to do our part to preserve planet earth. Converting to a more fuel efficient Chevrolet vehicle is a great first step, be here are a few more Earth Day Tips To Help Save The Planet in your everyday life!

Earth Day Tips To Help Save The Planet:
1. Unplug electronic appliances. Even when they aren't turned on, electronic appliances that are plugged into a power source still draw energy, which means you're wasting energy.

2. Shop the local farmer's market. Not only is the carbon impact of items from your farmer's market lower due to reduced transportation, but the food is almost always organic meaning no chemical pesticides have been used.

3. Buy and use a lunch box. Think about how waste-free you can make your lunch by using reusable containers, a reusable water bottle, and reusable utensils.

4. Install a new shower head. If you take a 10 minute shower every morning, you're likely using over 9,000 gallons of water per year. By switching to an EPA approved shower head you could save over 3,000 gallons of water per year!

5. Fill up the dishwasher. If you have a modern dishwasher, you don't need to rinse dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. In addition, wait until the dishwasher is full before turning it on.

6. Use the shades. Save money and energy by lowering your window shades. In the summer, they will keep the sun and heat out and in the winter they will keep cold drafts at a minimum.

7. Switch to natural household products. Regular household cleaning products can be incredibly toxic and have actually been cited as the second largest air pollutants in major U.S. cities!

8. Start a compost. You can greatly reduce the amount of household trash by composting.

9. Dispose of old electronics the right way. When electronics are dumped in landfills and exposed to high heat, they release toxic chemicals into the air, water, and ground. So either sell them online, or take them to the proper location in your city to get rid of them.

10. Walk instead of drive. If you're going a short distance, get some exercise and fresh air. With the weather being so nice out, you don't need to drive everywhere.

11. Pay your bills online. Not only will this save on paper, but it's also more convenient for you!

12. Stop using plastic or paper bags at the grocery store. Many grocery chains and stores offer reusable bags for a small price and unlimited use. Think about how much plastic you'll save in a month!

If you're looking to reduce your carbon impact by switching to a more fuel efficient vehicle like the 2017 Chevrolet Volt. If you're satisfied with the vehicle you're already driving, take a look at our Spring Car Care pages. By performing routine maintenance on your vehicle, you'll get the best fuel-efficiency possible. Schedule your spring service appointment at Graff Bay City today.

Spring Cleaning Car Care Tips

BAY CITY, Mich., – Are you ready to start your spring cleaning? Odds are you're planning to go through the closet and the cupboards, maybe the garage, but what about your car? Don't forget to give your ride some love this spring! Check out our spring cleaning car care tips from Graff Bay City to keep your ride in great shape!

Spring Cleaning Car Care Tips

1. Empty the Garbage

Empty bottles, receipts, wrappers and miscellaneous trash tends to build up in our vehicles over time. Clear out the garbage so you can find yourself on the way to a cleaner car!


2. Vacuum

After you've removed all of the trash, get out your heavy duty vacuum cleaner or head to the carwash to use theirs. Vacuum your upholstery and floors to remove any dirt, crumbs, leaves, or gravel that may have accumulated. You can even use a bottle of compressed air to get all of the dust from those hard to reach spaces. 

3. Sanitize

Use cleaning wipes or spray to wipe down and sanitize your interior surfaces. Get the gunk out of the cup holders and dust off the dashboard! Be sure you're using the appropriate type of cleaning product for your vehicle's specific surfaces.


4. Wash the Windows

Windex the inside of your windows to remove dust, fingerprints, and pet smudges. Don't forget about the inside of your front and rear windshields and your rearview mirror!

5. Exterior Wash

Head to the carwash or hand wash your car at home to finish off your spring cleaning for your car! Be sure to hand dry your vehicle to keep spots from appearing on your paint!

Car Care Hacks to Keep Your Ride Clean All Year Round:

Spring Cleaning Car Care Tips

  • Use silicone cupcake liners in your cup holders. They can easily be removed and cleaned if necessary!
  • Keep a small container or bag for trash to keep it from building up.
  • Wipe down wiper blades with alcohol to prevent streaking.
  • Keep tissues in a small to-go cup.
  • Place scented wax melts in a jar with holes for a DIY air freshener.
