Nothing is more important than having good visibility when you’re driving and if you can make it “green”, it’s even better. Here’s how:
You’re asking how can a wiper blade be green; here’s how:
- Make the “squeegee” part of the blade out of silicone instead of rubber; ordinary rubber blades require 8lbs of crude oil to make 1lb of rubber
- Package the wiper blades in eco-friendly, fully recyclable packaging; need we say anything about the way most wiper blades are packaged
- When the “squeegee” part of the wiper blade finally wears out, return it to AutoBeGreen or the factory and it will be ground in to “regrind”, then milled with other materials to make a silicone compound used in the manufacturing of new auto parts
- The wiper blade frame can be added to residential recycling
- Silicone wiper blades conserve natural resources and reduce the amount of landfill
Organic Rubber Wiper Blade Waste in US
- 101,785,714 organic wiper blades sold annually
- 3,138,767 lbs. of wiper squeegee petroleum byproduct waste annually
- 151,876 cu ft. of petroleum based wiper blade waste
- It takes 8lbs of crude oil to make 1lb. of synthetic rubber polymer
- Organic rubber squeegees can NOT be recycled
- The annual amount of petroleum wiper waste from organic rubber wipers is equivalent to:
- 2 football fields covered in 1 foot of petroleum wiper waste (in US)
- Nearly 6 football fields covered in 1 foot of petroleum wiper waste (globally)

Anti Fog’s nano-sized particles penetrate deep inside the windshield’s interior side and form a chemical bond, preventing fog buildup inside the vehicle.
