Victoria, BC, April 19, 2011
Victoria Transmission & Auto Care is pleased to announce that it will be distributing seedlings to every customer visiting its Government Street location the week of April 18, 2011 – in Celebration of Earth Day. The idea came from an employee on the Victoria Transmission & Auto Care team, all of whom will also be receiving seedlings.
As a part of its effort to be the greenest automotive service, repair and maintenance shop in BC, Victoria Transmission & Auto Care recently launched a number of environmentally-friendly maintenance packages featuring a Green oil change that uses re-refined, fully recycled oil. This product uses 85% less energy to create than non recycled oil as well as fifty times less raw crude oil per barrel. They also use fully synthetic transmission fluid which can last up to three times longer than conventional fluid, greatly cutting down on waste while generating optimal vehicle performance.
These are the most environmentally sensitive oils and fluids available anywhere in the world today.
Added co-owner Adam Sullivan: “Our team recognizes that many people here on the West Coast take environmental stewardship very seriously, and as a business we are extremely committed to being a leader in this area. Giving seedlings out to our customers and staff is a small step in getting them engaged in making a difference in this area.”
Victoria Transmission & Auto Care is a privately held company, with multiple operations serving Victoria, the regional municipalities and the remainder of Vancouver Island. It is a Finalist in the Victoria Chamber of Commerce 2010 Business of the Year Awards, in the Environmental Sustainability category—a first for an automotive and service repair shop in this award category.
