Every day we should work harder to become more conscientious of our planet. It needs our care, and Earth Day is a great reminder of that. At Bill Roberts Chevrolet, we like to celebrate Earth Day through ways that will continue beyond this one spring weekend. Here are some of our favorite celebrations.
Create Greener Driving
Earth Day is a great day to ride your bike to work or the grocery store. However, we know that this transportation isn’t always practical. So instead, learn how you can make your vehicle more efficient. Clear our clutter so your engine works less, get regular maintenance for optimum efficiency, and create a habit of driving in a way that uses the least amount of gas possible.
Start a Garden
Make it your goal this Earth Day to plant some herbs or vegetables. You can start small, and watch your food grow. It’s a good feeling to be in control of your own resources, and with some time you can grow a garden that’s big enough to provide fresh fruits and vegetables regularly.
Learn How to Compost
Composting is a great way to reduce waste and feed your garden, and Earth Day is the perfect nudge to get you going. The internet is full of tips for first-time composters that will have you going in no time.
At the North American International Auto Show this year, Chevrolet unveiled an all-new model. However, it wasn’t anything that you’ll be able to drive. It was a life-size LEGO Batmobile.
The 17-foot long LEGO creation was made to celebrate the release of the new LEGO Batman Movie that comes out this month. It was designed and assembled at the LEGO Model Shop in Enfield, Connecticut by LEGO Master Builders (Isn’t that a job you would like to have?).
It took 222 hours to design and 1,833 hours to build the Batmobile. In total, there are 344,187 LEGO bricks in 17 different colors in the model. It measures 204 inches long, 83 inches high, and 111 inches wide and weight a total of 1,695.5 pounds.
To further enhance this partnership with Warner Bros., Chevrolet even created a model page for the Batmobile on its site. From there, you can see that the Batmobile is available in 13 different shades of black, can tow up to 120,000 pounds, and gets 20,000 horsepower from its 60.2-liter V100 engine. And, it only costs $48 million. Okay, it’s not really for sale, but it’s fun to imagine what it would be like to own and drive a real Batmobile.
