As the world demands greener substitutes as everyone becomes more environmentally conscious, Ford reacts by using sustainable materials in its manufacture of the new 2015 F-150.
Fareham, Hampshire -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/07/2015 -- As a result, the major car company will take more than five million plastic bottles from landfills around the world this year alone to use in the construction process of their newest model.
While electric cars are popping up all over the place, there are ways to save the planet and still not have to worry about where to plug your car in overnight. Ford has been focused on saving the planet for decades. All the way back in the 1930s, Henry Ford was using wood pulp, soybeans, jute and hemp to make usable vehicle components. However, a wide choice of cheap plastics soon came along that were easier to use, and the trend of using natural products was forgotten about - until recently.
Over the last three years, Ford has been working alongside Unifi Manufacturing to use Repreve while constructing new cars. This environmentally friendly fibre offers a high level of performance is made from recycled materials such as PET bottles and industrial waste and was originally used in the manufacturing process for Ford's electric Ford Focus back in 2012. The product proves to be successful and is now being using to build the new Ford F-150, which is the most popular truck in the USA.
Being environmentally conscious when choosing a car to buy is important, and it is something that many used car buyers will take into consideration, if only to ensure they get good value for money from their investment. Buying a car second-hand is a great way to save money and make a good-value investment. Sourcing a vehicle that is environmentally friendly will help to reduce the negative effects of carbon emissions. When it comes to used cars Hampshire based dealership Fareham Car Sales always has a good selection.
