Do you wash your car at home or take it to the car wash? Personally, I take my car to the car wash, and the main reason is because where I live in NYC, I really have no place else to wash my car. I never thought that by washing my car at the car wash I was making a “greener” choice. Not only do you use more water washing your car at home, but the run off from the water into the drains also washes away pollutants which are then released back into the environment. Professional car washes may recycle water and tend to use way less water than you would use at home, which can be upwards of 100 gallons!
The people over at WaterSavers are spreading awareness with the International Carwash Association to let people know the environmental benefits of washing your car at a professional carwash. Carwashes can use up to 60% less water than you would use at home. To find a certifies Watersavers professional car wash near you, be sure to check out WashWithWaterSavers.com. By choosing to use a professional car wash service, you can help save water, protect aquatic life, and preserve the environment.
