Building A Greener Car Wash
The rise of the modern green movement in North America can be traced back to the late 1960s & early 1970s.
However, this movement has truly flourished in our post 9/11 world.
As a result, people are more aware than ever that conserving resources, both at home & work, is vitally important.
One result of this awareness is the emergence of eco-washes; car washes that conserve water & strive to reduce waste.
Water Efficiency and Considerable Conservation
The Alliance for Water Efficiency reports that the average home washing machine uses up to 170 litres of water per load! New environmentally conscious car washes, such as WaterSavers, are able to use less than 150 litres per wash.
This comparison shows a considerable conservation of water, especially when you remember that the size of your car is significantly larger than a load of laundry.
Some enterprising companies even go a step further & have developed innovative products that eliminate the need for water all together.
For example, Aquasaver, a product developed in British Columbia, requires only a microfiber towel to apply the solution, but the promise remains the same: a clean car free of dirt & grime.
