Keeping the Green Going

 

Haven’t you sometimes wondered what happens to all those old tires you throw out? Unfortunately, the answer is often, “not much.” As many as 275 million of them wind up stockpiled at any given time. But if those of us at Bridjit had our way, they would all be reborn as Bridjit ramps!

At Bridjit, it’s always Earth Day. We don’t feel we should be environmentally conscious one day in April; rather, it’s a year-round commitment. Every Bridjit rubber curb ramp set represents 12 passenger tires that have been productively recycled. Says Bridjit Ramp’s founder/president John Curry, “Bridjit is proud to help reduce this environmental problem and lead our country’s sustainability efforts.”

Here’s how it’s done:

  • A tire recycling operation reduces scrap tires to small chips, removing all the fiber and wire.
  • The chips are ground into a fine powder known as crumb rubber.
  • This rubber is used to make products from fitness mats, to playground flooring, to Bridjit ramps.

Our driveway curb ramps are ideal for low profile cars like the Toyota Prius or for cars like the Chevy Corvette that have ground attachments. By installing a three-piece auto ramp set from Bridjit, your car will glide smoothly into your driveway without damaging your vehicle

Flip Bridjit Curb Ramps out of the way for easy cleaning

It is a good idea to flip the curb ramps out of the way for periodic cleaning. We recommend that you move the custom car ramps seasonally to ensure that the built-in, full-length waterway under the auto ramps remains unobstructed, allowing water and debris to flow smoothly along the curb. Simply flip the curb ramps out of the way, sweep up the debris and dispose of appropriately, never into the storm drain system.

Five Easy Ways to Conserve Gas

Though the fuel crisis and skyrocketing gas prices seem to have passed, they will be back with a vengeance when our economy returns. Regardless, it is still important to reduce our gas consumption to protect our environment and conserve resources for future generations. Here are 5 easy ways for you to conserve gas while saving money.

1. Travel less. This gas-saving method can be implemented in a variety of ways including planning ahead for your needs, consolidating your trips to the store with other errands, as well as walking and bicycling more, carpooling, utilizing public transportation, and working from home occasionally instead of commuting every day.

2. Properly maintain your car. Regular maintenance of your vehicle is one of the most important things you can do to maximize your vehicle’s performance and increase its longevity. This includes regularly checking tire pressure, changing your oil, replacing air filters and getting tune-ups as recommended in your vehicle’s owner’s manual.

3. Minimize damage to your vehicle. One way to prevent unnecessary damage to your vehicle is to install a set of curb ramps at the end of your roll-over curb driveway entries. Well-made curb ramps minimize damage to your car’s undercarriage, tires, alignment and steering, improving your gas mileage.

4. Drive a fuel efficient car. If you have two vehicles at home, drive the more fuel efficient vehicle whenever possible. And, when you’re in the market for a new car, consider trading in your gas-guzzling SUV or truck for a car that gets better gas mileage, like one of the many hybrids now on the market. Models to consider include the Toyota Prius, Nissan Versa, Ford Fusion Hybrid and the Chrysler Sebring E85.

5. Refill your gas tank slowly. Since modern gas pumps are safety-equipped with vapor returns, that vapor is sucked back out of your car and returned to the underground storage tank where it condenses back into gas. In effect, by pumping faster, you are paying for gas you don’t keep. Instead, pump your gas slowly on the lowest setting to minimize vapor creation and keep most of what you pay for.

By following these five simple tips, you can conserve gas without any significant changes to your driving habits or lifestyle. At the same time, you’ll reduce wear and tear on your vehicle and save time and money. What a bargain!

Happy Holidays!

Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas for the Guy or Gal Who Has Everything


Christmas is just around the corner, and shopping days are dwindling quickly. If you haven’t figured out what to give the guy or gal on your holiday gift list, consider these last minute gift ideas designed with the practical man (or woman) in mind:

1. Heated ice scraper: If your beloved lives in a cold climate, he or she will love a heated ice scraper. These handy devices make scraping the ice off a windshield so much easier, and they are the ideal size for a stocking stuffer. Price: $10 – $20.

2. Remote car starter: For those who park outside, a remote car starter is a thoughtful gift. With a remote car starter, you can warm your car up before traveling out and about. It is not only convenient, but it is better for your car too. Price: $50 and up.

3. Roof racks (ski, snowboarding): If your loved one enjoys winter sports like snowboarding or skiing, then a roof rack or carrier is a necessity. Price: $50 and up.

4. Vehicle back-up camera: Does your husband or wife repeatedly back into things when exiting the garage? Maybe you have a garage or driveway with blind spots. Either way, a wireless, mountable vehicle back-up camera will save your vehicle from dents and scrapes. Price: $85 and up.

5. iPod car accessories: iPod car accessories like car chargers, adapters and holders are a must have for music lovers. Prices vary depending on the accessory, some as low as a few dollars.

6. Bluetooth headset: Many states are enacting laws making it illegal to drive while talking or texting on a cell phone. To protect those you love while obeying the law, buy a Bluetooth headset for easy, hands-free talking. Now available in a variety of styles, colors and sizes, prices start around $25.

7. Motorcycle care kit: Does your guy have a chopper that he loves? Does your gal prize her Harley above all else? If so, a motorcycle care kit is a practical gift. Most come with a variety of cleaners for different surfaces (chrome, leather, etc.), cleaning cloths or sponges, and can be purchased almost anywhere. Price: $25 and up.

8. Heated massage back seat cushion: When your guy or gal is playing the role of backseat driver, distract him or her with a heated massage back seat cushion. Available for as little as $20, this gift is particularly useful in colder climates or for those with achy backs.

9. Interior car accessories: If your loved one drives a lot or has a long commute, consider gifts that will make the ride a little more pleasant. He or she will think of you every time they hear their favorite CD or use their new floor mats, decorative seat covers or steering wheel cover.

10. Curb ramps: Does your favorite guy or gal have those pesky rollover curbs at home – the kind that scrape the bottom of your car or truck any time you enter or leave your driveway? If so, then a set of curb ramps are a great solution. Curb ramps improve gas mileage and save wear and tear on cars, trucks, vans, RVs, boats, golf carts and more. Price: about $300 for a standard-sized driveway, $400 for a wide driveway.

Many of these can be purchased at your local automotive store (Napa, Schuck’s, AutoZone), large discount retailers (K-Mart, Target, Wal-Mart Costco), and sometimes your local detail or body shop. Knowing your stretched for time, you might want to search online instead to see if you can have your gifts shipped in time for Christmas.
