I knew Ford was using/reusing products in it's interior in an effort to be more environmentally friendly, but I had no idea that the interior of the 2012 Ford Focus Electric is deemed 100% sustainable!
At a latest event put by EcoStiletto Ford's designer Leslie Swek offered the organization's newest nature-inspired colours, such as Frosted Cup. The icy shade of light natural is the trademark shade of the 2012 Ford Focus Electric -- offering a "100 percent sustainable interior"
Anthony Prozzi, formerly from the world of fashion, talked of the automaker’s use of maintainable elements in its inside, from furniture to carpeting.
The new Ford Focus Electrical is only the first of the 100% maintainable, post-industrial inside for Ford's growing line of natural automobiles -- the Fusion Energi, Transit Connect, etc.
Ford is studying the use of various plant-based items -- such as avocado fiber content from the waste-stream of Miracle-Gro items -- in its continuous attempt to reduce the use of petroleum-based elements and create lighter-weight automobiles for better petrol performance. But since some of these elements are not gleaming enough for the public’s flavor, many elements are used in the underbody of the Ford Focus Electric.
Sustainable elements developer Mary Kordich is most energized about the effort to get providers, like Repreve, created by Unifi, to “close the loop” by recycling where possible its fabric by sending it back into string production.
