Ford wants to build car parts using cash, literally

by Gareth Mankoo

Recycling has just seen a new extreme in Ford’s latest fad. The company is looking forward to use discarded, torn, outdated and other lesser valued currency notes to make parts of cars. These notes only form a part of all the probable materials used in making recycled parts. It’s said that about 10,000 pounds of unusable currency is shredded, daily. This can contribute in the making of some rather snazzy seats and other accessories.

In other eco-friendly measures taken by Ford, there’s the phenomenal 5 million drop in petroleum use by the company. So they are going green, pretty major. Good.
