Ford Bronco Sport Becomes First Vehicle To Feature Parts Made of 100% Recycled Ocean Plastic  

Many people think of electric cars when they think of the most sustainable vehicles on the road, but Ford Motors proves otherwise with the Ford Bronco Sport. The Bronco Sport is one of the newest SUVs made by the American motor company, and it is also one of the most popular new picks for many consumers. Making the Ford Bronco Sport more appealing now than ever is that its parts are produced using sustainable materials. The wiring harness pins used on the Ford are comprised 100% of recycled materials, which is a significant first step in the automaker's sustainability initiatives into the future.

Why Use Recycled Plastics?

Ford has chosen to use recycled plastic material for its vehicles for several reasons. One is product quality. Recycled materials from the ocean have an exceptionally high quality that is just as good as the petroleum-derived products that they are based on. Recycled materials from the ocean help offset the volume of plastic that gets dumped into the ocean every year, which amounts to about 13 million tons. That, in turn, helps save many aquatic and marine species that can get entangled in plastic each year, such as dolphins, sea turtles, fish, and other species. Birds can also get caught up in netting and plastics.

What is the Wiring Harness Pin?

The wiring harness pin is currently the only part of the Ford Bronco Sport that is made exclusively of materials sourced from the ocean. However, the company hopes to make more parts from recycled materials from the sea in the future. The wiring harness pin is a small component that requires durable materials to perform at its best. The wiring harness pin is a connective part that attaches to the airbags in the back row. The wiring harness pin in the Bronco Sport is made of nylon material, which is durable and long-lasting. The wiring harness pins weigh about five grams each, and they are invisible to most drivers and occupants. However, they have an important role to play in safety and passenger protection.

Jobs Creation

Aside from just the benefits that they provide to cars, goods made from recycled products also offer advantages for people. Creating plastic products made from the ocean is a source of new jobs for Ford and the auto industry. That trend is expected to continue in the future as more consumer goods are made from recycled plastics.
