About Green Drop Garage

Green Drop Garage provides eco-friendly auto maintenance and repair. From oil changes to tires to engine overhauls, Green Drop Garage is a one-stop shop for all car maintenance and repair needs. With its background in converting diesel vehicles to vegetable oil, Green Drop Garage naturally took the next step and branched out to auto maintenance and repair. A product line of re-refined motor oils, enzyme-based parts cleaners and bicycles to loan out to its clients is just the beginning. Car care classes are offered in the evenings and many local organizations benefits from in-kind services donated by Green Drop Garage. All staff have paid time off, sick pay and of course health insurance and retirement.

We chose to become a B Corp because the certification reflects our triple-bottom-line values. We also are proud to be among a group of organizations that use business as a force for good.

The Change We Seek®

Green Drop Garage seeks to change the way car repair is performed and how repair shops interact with their employees, the community and the environment. In working with state environmental agencies and other shops in the area, Green Drop Garage continues to push the boundaries of what eco-friendly auto repair can be.

What makes us a better company?
