They also use a service called Safety-Kleen which cleans their used oils and antifreeze for reuse.
ECO-Friendly is the only shop in Florida to offer customers the choice of using an oil made from animal fat called G-Oil instead of regular motor oil. G-Oil is totally biodegradeable and certified by the American Petroleum Institute.
Dawson has also been asked to write about what it takes to be a certified green shop for Certified Green Partners’ certification book in the coming months.
ECO-Friendly is the first auto repair shop in the state of Florida to receive certification from CGP.
“It shows I’m a leader, not a follower; it makes me different than anyone else,” said Dawson.
Certified Green Partners is an independent certifying organization dedicated to promoting environmental commitment by providing end users with education on the preservation of our natural resources.
“Eco Friendly Auto Center have become the first green certified auto center in Florida. Commitment through certification stimulates excellence. If we all become certified, there would be no need for legislation,” said Gus Casamayor, Founder Certified Green Partners.
