Sustainability

Lube Stop has performed more than 8 million oil changes in Northeast Ohio on the shores of Lake Erie since 1985. The lake contains over 127 trillion gallon of fresh water and oil from one of those services could contaminate over 1 million gallons of water.

Lube Stop is dedicated to protecting the environment and is part of a growing community dedicated to making Cleveland, Akron and Canton “Green Cities on a Blue Lake.”

Today, Lube Stop is spearheading the adoption of sustainable business in the quick oil change industry and was the first quick oil change company in the United States to be Green Plus Certified, launch a formal sustainability program, and trademark a re-refined oil change service it calls EcoGuard.

Consider the following:

  • The U.S. represents 4% of the earth’s population, yet consumes 25% of its natural resources and emits 25% of all greenhouse emissions.
  • The world’s population has increased 225% since World War II.
  • It would require three (3) earths to sustain the global population if it maintained the same rate of consumption as the U.S.
  • Americans scrap more than 10 million cars annually.

Lube Stop Sustainability Program Overview
Lube Stop believes that business, in partnership with government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), will find the solutions to resolve these current ecological and environmental issues. Lube Stop formally implemented the Lube Stop Sustainability Program (LSSP) with the goal to significantly reduce the company’s ecological impact and improve the communities in which it operates.  In December 2007, the company formally implemented the Sustainability Program.  more>>
