Lloyd's is both Earth and Female Friendly!
We are proud to be a Green Business certified by the Monterey Bay Area Green Business Program. We have been at the forefront of environmental awareness in the auto industry, and we were finalists for the prestigious Acterra Award for Environmental Sustainability this year. We are also a Certified Female Friendly Business with AskPatty.com.
At Lloyd's Tire & Auto Care, we employ earth friendly practices in the operation of our business, including the following:
Recycling of all used tires
Though recycling old tires is now mandatory throughout the industry, Lloyd's has been doing it for around 40 years (well before it was required by law). We send tires to West Coast Rubber Recycling where tires are ground up and used for things like artificial turf athletic fields.
Hybrid Battery Conditioning
Battery Conditioning is a process by which power is restored to existing batteries, a more environmentally friendly and far less expensive option to battery replacement. This process, developed by The Hybrid Shop, can be applied for the life of a vehicle thus keeping discarded batteries out of the salvage and disposal streams.
We sell Michelin Green X Tires
The Michelin Tires that make up the largest portion of Lloyd's tire sales are the most fuel efficient on the road. Michelin Green X technology is applied to tires to increase overall performance and fuel savings.
Nitrogen Tire Inflation
Since improper tire inflation is the leading cause of poor gas mileage, we offer Nitrogen Tire Inflation free to our customers. Nitrogen holds pressure in tires for far longer than air, and Lloyd's has been using it for almost ten years. We also offer free lifetime service on our tires that includes unlimited air pressure checks.
Lloyd's offers Re-refined Oils
We already offer re-refined (or recycled) oils to our customers with diesel vehicles, and soon, Lloyd's will be offering these products for all vehicles.
100% proper disposal of all automotive fluids
Lloyd's recycles used oil and auto parts
All office paper recycled and going paperless soon
We recycle so extensively at Lloyd's, we were able to go to a garbage dumpster that is half the size of our old one.
We encourage everyone to join Lloyd's Tire & Auto Care in being environmentally responsible.
