Hitting the brakes can also hit the environment hard.
Traditional brakes pads can be made with copper, asbestos, and lead. Every time you put on the brakes, trace amount of copper is left on the roadways. This copper then enters waterways, and negatively effects the wildlife.
EcoStop Brake Pads are the first ever copper-free ceramic brakes. EcoStop brakes are made from biodegradable and recycled materials. They also use water-based paints to avoid more harmful chemicals entering the environment. Next time your need new brakes, consider the impact you could make by choosing the greener option.
