Environmental Leadership

Stringent requirements and regulations can make being a green business tough. Imagine what it's like being a green automotive service center? To be green in our business takes rigorous training, a commitment to the latest sustainable and diagnostic technology and, of course, a passion for environmental good stewardship. It takes time, money, training, technology, performance and culture change. But, at Chapel Hill Tire Car Care Center, it's worth it...because our community is worth it.

Chapel Hill Tire Car Care Center, a Green Plus Certified company, continues their national leadership in support of community sustainability programs and services. We were the first in the Triangle to introduce NitroFill tire inflation services, the first to offer an E.F.O. change and the first to offer non-lead wheel weights. Now we continue our green leadership initiatives by partnering with NC Green Power to be the first to offer the purchase of carbon offsets to reduce the impact of the greenhouse gases produced when you drive your car. With each and every E.F.O. oil change at Chapel Hill Tire Car Care Center, we will purchase carbon offsets in the amount of $2.00, and you can rest assured that your oil change is not only environmentally-friendly, but it is also contributing to clean energy in North Carolina.
