    Volvo is making green moves. According to Autoblog, the automobile manufacturer wants all of its vehicles to be made from 25% recycled materials. The plan will be rolled out in its vehicles that are made in 2025 and onward.

    The green initiative starts with the XC60 T8 hybrid SUV, as its model demo seats are made from recycled plastic bottles. Carpets and mats have been made from fishing nets harvested from the ocean. Luggage compartments are made from plastic tomato sauce and shampoo bottles.
