A to Z and the Enviroment
There are two aspects to this section. They are:
• The link between the environment, A-Z and second hand car parts
• The link between A-Z and minimising our impact on the environment
Our Car Parts
There are great benefits of using second hand car parts, for both the consumer and the environment. In terms of benefits to the consumer, the price of these parts is typically half that of new parts, providing a major saving to the consumer. In terms of the benefits to the environment, the use of these parts saves enormous amounts of energy, raw materials and carbon dioxide emissions, by avoiding the manufacture and distribution of new parts.
A new part purchased by a consumer in the UK may have been flown from the anywhere in the world - the true environmental costs can be enormous. By buying second hand car parts, consumers not only save money, but they utilise products which have already been manufactured, which generates no further environmental impact.
At A-Z we aim to recycle, on average, over 90% of each vehicle.
