Flowood auto dealership hosts Family Earth Day event

FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A metro area car dealer is celebrating Earth Day by hosting a family Earth Day event at the dealership.

From shredding paper to recycling potentially dangerous chemicals, such as used engine oil, transmission fluids and other fluids,  Doug Wilson says he's dedicated the entire month of April to "going green", above and beyond what's required by the federal government.

"In the past, I've been invited to several schools to bring hybrid vehicles and talk about how we handle caustic chemicals and things like that to some of the schools," said Wilson. "I thought it'd be a great idea to have an Earth Day celebration of our own. We have family day out which coincides with that where we've got a petting zoo and farm to table vegetables and some bounce houses for the kids and try to have some fun with it."

Wilson says his dealership has used a monthly housekeeping checklist for over 20-years to monitor environmental and safety compliance.
