An annual celebration on April 22nd called “Earth Day” aims to increase public understanding of and support for environmental preservation. As the world continues to face environmental challenges, it is essential that individuals and organizations take steps towards sustainable living. One of the ways to promote environmental sustainability is through the practice of auto-recycling. At Car Donation Wizard, we celebrate Earth Day through our car donation program! When you donate a car to one of our charity partners, such as Habitat for Humanity, The American Cancer Society, or Car Talk, your vehicle is either sold at auction or sent to a recycling facility.

This practice helps to reduce waste in landfills, conserve natural resources, and protect the environment. Auto-recycling is an essential practice that helps to protect the environment and promote sustainable living.
