Greening Our Products

Choosing sustainable materials:

 

  • 300 of our vehicle parts are derived from renewable materials, like nylon, soy, rice and even coconut fibers.
  • Since Ford started using soybean-based foam, approximately 228 million pounds of CO2 have been saved from entering the atmosphere.
  • Ford uses eco-conscious, soy-based materials during manufacturing, like soy-based polyurethane foam for seat backs, cushions and head restraints, while incorporating both recycled tires and soybean oil into exterior mirror gaskets.
