Madison’s Environmentally Friendly Dealership!

By | Community Support, Dealer News, Service News | No Comments

From ground breaking to daily business operations, every aspect of our facility was designed with enhanced sustainability in mind. The building footprint optimizes about 25,000 square feet of land use with three stories. Our vehicle service area is located on the lower story while the showroom is on the upper story. Our third story has office space for future growth. By having our service area directly below the showroom, not only do we reduce our environmental impact, we also increase our energy efficiency.

Just above our service reception drive, we have a 5000 square foot green roof with benches that you can access from inside the facility. Our green roof reduces air pollution while attracting wildlife, such as butterflies, birds and bees. Our green roof has many different types of flowers that you can enjoy as well as a kid’s play area so you can still keep an eye on the little ones. Our second kid’s play area is located right off our showfloor and our third kid’s area is combined with our comfortable customer lounge. Our customer lounge comes equipped with iMacs, iPads, coffee bar, freshly popped popcorn and snacks.

Did you know, if every house in the US replaced one regular light bulb with a compact fluorescent bulb, it would prevent 90 billion pounds of greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, the equivalent to removing 7.5 million cars from the road, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists. We took our lighting a step further and use natural lighting and LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting for our interior and exterior energy use. For a complete comparison of LEDs, incandescent and CFLs please visit www.designrecycleinc.com. We also use motion detector sensor lights in our offices, which helps us not only save money, but it saves energy and the environment. Around the exterior of our facility, we use Exterior Insulate and Finish System (EFIS) to maximize energy efficiency and to substantially cut power consumption.

Our service department also encourages environmentally friendly procedures. When performing an oil change on a vehicle, we remove the old oil and recycle it, helping keep the oil out of our rivers, lakes, beaches and even our drinking water. You can also help the environment by performing regular maintenance on your vehicle. Regular maintenance to your vehicle not only extends the life of your vehicle, it also creates less pollution and saves gas. A properly maintained vehicle, clean air filters and properly inflated tiers can greatly improve your vehicle’s performance. If you maintenance with us, you get a complimentary carwash every time. Our professional carwashes are often more efficient with water consumption than washing by hand. Did you know, that if everyone in the US who hand wash, took their vehicle through a carwash just once, we could save nearly 8.7 billion gallons of water, according to 50waystohelp.com.

SATURDAY NIGHT LINE

HONDA PARTNERS WITH SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE

By | Sales and Events | No Comments

Honda and NBC Universal have worked out an agreement to partner up for Saturday Night Live‘s latest web series, called “Saturday Night Line.”

It’s a comedy series that centres around the standby line at 30 Rockefeller Plaza that builds up before every live Saturday show. This lineup can become quite large, with people camping up for days in advance to get these tickets.

How it works is host Michael Antonucci or a regular Saturday Night Live (SNL) cast member will pick people out of the line and talk to them on the streets or take them inside the studios for a short skit. Now, with this new Honda partnership, many of the skits will be done from inside the 2015 Honda CR-V and all-new 2016 Honda HR-V. The vehicles will be used as rolling venues and backdrops for the comedy sketch. And for some of the episodes, the SUVs will be fully shown.

In a recent episode called “Car’aoke,” SNL cast member Aidy Bryant hops into the back seat of the CR-V with a few fans for a comical singing section of Christmas songs.

Partnerships between automakers and television programs are nothing new. For years, The Amazing Race used Ford vehicles including the Escape and C-Max during challenges, while Hyundai, as one of the sponsors for The Walking Dead, used a shiny Tucson in some episodes.

Saturday Night Line will air on NBC.com at 8 pm ET on Saturday ahead of the live episode of SNL, which begins at 11:30 pm. Honda will have pre-roll ads before each webisode. NBC.com has restrictions to air its products in Canada, so you will have to try Youtube and other video-on-demand platforms to get your fix.

Earth Day

Celebrate Earth Day!

By | Community Support, Dealer News, Events | No Comments

April 22, 2015 marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day. This day is considered the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970, according to earthday.org. Madison’s very own U.S. Senator, Gaylord Nelson, founded the idea of Earth Day after witnessing the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. On April 22, 1970, Nelson capitalized on the emerging consciousness, channeling the energy of the anti-war protest movement and putting environmental concerns front and center. Millions of Americans took to the streets, parks and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies. On this day in history, the first Earth Day movement lead to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts. Earth Day has encouraged businesses, including ours to become more environmentally friendly. From our LED lights to our Green Roof, we implement environmental practices throughout our dealership.

Often celebrated the weekend before, Earth Day brings together people from all steps of life to help educate and remind everyone of the environmental impacts we have on the earth. In Madison, Wisconsin’s Earth Day Heritage is to be celebrated in music and words on Saturday, April 18 and Wednesday, April 22, 2015. Music broadcast will feature the voices of the descendants of John Muir, Aldo Leopold and Earth Day founder Sen. Gaylord Nelson, set to the symphonic music of Wisconsin composer John Harmon. For the third year, the music will be “broadcast” in the Rotunda of Wisconsin’s State Capitol building. Listeners should gather at the bust of “Fighting Bob” La Follette (the East Gallery entry is closest).
