There are many things we can do this month to celebrate Earth Day to help our planet. In the past seven and a half years of writing this green blog I have shared many! I’m still always stretching my brain to see how else I can contribute. Did you know that there are ways you will drive away feeling better after your oil change?
The first time I went to get an oil change with my new car they told me they would only put synthetic oil in it. What they didn’t tell this girl, who doesn’t know cars very well, is that this is a lot more expensive! It ended up being a good thing though.
Tips for Driving Away Feeling Better About Your Earth Day Oil Change at the Walmart Auto Care Center:
- Go early. Ours opens at 7:00 am. I arrived at 7:30 with no one else there and was done 20 minutes later.
- No appointments. This can be a good thing or a bad, but normally I like it because I fit it in my schedule.
- Shop while waiting. No sitting in crummy mechanic shop waiting rooms.
- Are affordable. Below I’m going to share how you can grab a $10 off your next Mobil 1™ purchase.
- Synthetic oil is a GOOD thing. It allows fewer oil changes and less oil waste. I’ve really come to appreciate this!
- All oil is recycled and if you change your own, bring in your oil to be recycled.
Do you buy your own oil? Let me share some statistics on why buying Mobil 1 ™ Annual Protection at Walmart will make you feel better this Earth Day.
- If every car in the U.S. used Mobil 1 ™ Annual Protection we would prevent or reduce enough CO2 emissions to fill the Empire State Building more than 5,000 times and the CO2 emissions reduction would be equivalent to taking more than 500,000 cars off the road! *
- Mobil 1 ™ can reduce the carbon footprint of your vehicle by the CO2 equivalent of 96 lbs. and has a smaller carbon footprint than conventional motor oils. **
