You’ve gone green at home by recycling and cutting back your energy use. You’ve gone green at work by only printing when necessary and using your own coffee cup instead of disposable ones. Now it’s time to go green with your charitable donations as well.
Give a Car for a Cause
Kars 4 Kids is one non-profit organization that helps you go green by recycling your old car for a good cause. In this case, recycling your car means that you donate it to charity rather than sending it to a junkyard. This keeps the car and all of its parts out of the landfill and reduces leakage into the soil of oil and other chemicals and fluids. In turn, this keeps seepage from getting into local bodies of water and even drinking water in the community.
It’s Green and Tax Deductible
When you donate your old car to a charity and recycle your old car, you are helping to provide the charity with the funds it needs for its cause. The benefits go beyond your goodwill, however, in that they also make the world a better place to live, work and play. When you take old cars out of commission, it also means that you are using up less energy (gas). This too can add some green to your wallet with the rising cost of gas.
Finally, donating your car greens your pocket because it is a tax deductible donation that allows you to get rid of your old gas guzzler, make a difference and save money in the process.
