Ford to Use Coconut Fibers to Make Recyclable Car Products

Share

The famous car-making company, Ford, continues its eco-friendly path, increasing the number of recyclable materials in its vehicles.

One of the recent materials that Ford is experimenting with is coconut fibers, also called coir.

The firm wants to use coconut fibers to make eco-friendly and at the same time more durable door and seat trims, plastic storage bins, and cup holders. It is worth mentioning that today engineers use petroleum to make such car parts.
