If you were truly concerned about the environment you'd buy a Prius, Tesla or ride a bicycle. Oil filters are recycled and the used oil is cleaned and repurposed.There is also the environmental impact as I would not have to dispose of a used filter.
I'm positive about a lot. Foremost, I'm so excited over my new D4S bulbs that I installed yesterday that the grin you see on my face will still be on my face when I die and the mortuary will say, "He's got a big grin and we're going to have to leave it." Come to my funeral and you can see the D4S grin. Also, there's not going to be any tape when they plump me. If you know anything about mortuary science you know what the tape is for. I'm going to grin over that too.Wow Rub, so much negativity for a simple question. What are you positive about?
I grew up in a steel town. The process of making steel is recycling old steel. During tours of the Mill I can remember watching them put scrap steel into the furnace to be melted down, starting the cycle over again.I think subaru makes cars with recycled steel.
subaru probably made your car with some of my recycled OEM oil filters,
that I kindly make available to them for that purpose at my local dump's metal bin. (40 feet from the waste oil container).
.. so please enjoy my used filters in good health....for now I will keep buying subaru OEM filters, and they will keep buying them back in the recycled steel market.
