Is Keeping Your Old Car Better For The Environment?

Is it better for the environment to keep your car that already works, thus not creating something new and using new resources, or to buy something new that's more efficient? 

Gas cars require less emissions to produce than electric cars, so out of the gate they're more environmentally friendly. However, gasoline cars produce far more emissions while in use, versus electric cars, so eventually the scales tilt in favor of EVs. But is it within a meaningful amount of time, or should we simply be preventing the creation of new waste, by keeping and maintaining what we already have? And what about all of those metals required for EV batteries? 

In this video we'll focus on both the emissions and the resources, to determine if you should keep your used car, or buy a new car, as it relates to going green.
