ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF SAFETY GLASS

 

Bulletproof Autosports approachesenvironmental issues from a common sense perspective. As a matter of fact, you could actually say that we are"common sense green".We believe we should all be responsible with what we have and do what we can. We are looking for solutions, not punishment, prevention, not reaction.

We are replacing windshield glass at an alarming rate. While there are times when windshield replacement is the only option,damaged windshields get thrown into our landfills, so damage prevention and chip / crack repair are the environmentally responsible options.
