Changing the world; it is all about every small changes.
We know that the Easter Island was all upholstered with grass and adorned with tall trees, and that the Sumerian empire grew in a fertile land, yet what we nowadays find there is dray as tray; apparently, not every civilization overcomes their ecological challenges and, what is more relevant, nowadays it is not a matter of a corner of the world being deforested or polluted, but the whole planet is at stake.
Fortunately for us, never before we have had so much information and so much possible ways to act. While it is true that nobody can do everything, it is also evident that everybody can do something, because this changing planet can definitely use a helping hand to change for the better!
When searching for all those little -but effective in the aggregate- things that we all can do we may find plenty of them regarding our vehicle. For example, most drivers around the world may use all-season tires with no perceivable change in performance: all-season tires have the same test results over asphalt under the majority of weather conditions, and the same goes for driving on tracks under favorable weather.
Likewise, with truck equipment, such as flatbed semi trailer, we can make a little big difference. Tire retread is orders of magnitude greener than changing tires completely, and it gets more important and necessary the more tires are set apart and piled up for recycling. Another important feature of truck equipment is that oil and similar liquids shall be placed in the proper containers, in order for them to be treated properly or recycled: this small step may after translate in thousands of dollars and dozens of hours saved when processing the waste.
We may learn much more about the former while asking for trucking businesses in the Internet and in our preferred store alike, since every employee nowadays seems to be very interested in turning his or her job into a sustainable one! Additionally, other trucking services in which we can all be greener include adding solar-panels for some specific functions, second hand and recycled spare parts when possible and taking scrap and similar metals to specialized locations. Sometimes, even a truck modification, to reduce emissions, may be the right thing to do.
