John Bradburn, GM’s Global Manager of Waste Reduction, who is also oftenn called the “MacGyver of waste” by his colleagues has developed multiple ways in which GM can repurpose used car parts for the greater good. Bradburn’s team diverts this waste from landfill while also ensuring it becomes something of importance for wildlife.
This year during Pocono race weekends Team Chevy, Chevrolet Sustainability, Pocono Raceway and NASCAR Green will come together to build sustainable habitats for bats by repurposing recycled Chevrolet Volt battery covers. These habitats will be placed within the raceway grounds to support the local ecosystem. During the June race and Pocono Kids Day local area children will have the opportunity to visit the Team Chevy display, build a habitat and learn how to give back to the environment.
