CARSTAR to Celebrate Earth Day
April 16, 2019—CARSTAR locations in Canada and the U.S. continue to work to minimize their environmental footprint.
CARSTAR is planting trees in both its Canadian and U.S. head office locations, in Hamilton, Ontario and Charlotte, N.C. They are planting mature trees in Hamilton to increase their likelihood of survival and planting trees in Charlotte along the Little Sugar Creek to help reduce flooding and keep the stream cool.
“One of the founding pillars of CARSTAR is to give back to the communities we work and live in, which includes the environment,” says Michael Macaluso, president, CARSTAR. “Our aim with the April celebration of our 30th anniversary is to positively impact our head office cities, Hamilton and Charlotte, on top of our continued sustainability efforts across North America.”
A few of CARSTAR’s other conservations efforts include using recycled parts when the repair process allows, hosting community clean-up days, embracing technology to eliminate paper usage, recycling materials like tires or paint thinners, using energy efficient equipment like specialized spray guns and even installing new LED lighting to reduce energy consumption.
