Car wash can be green

Writer compares what is done at car washes in California

I am a California resident and two years ago bought a property in your beautiful seaside village. You are all so lucky to live here all the time.

I am a teacher and have come here only during my summertime break.  My vehicle gets quite dirty on my trip here and that harms the paint. Sometimes I stop to look at the giant Sequoia trees and my vehicle is covered in sap when I get here. A car wash would be a welcoming sight and make me feel right at home. We have lots of car washes in California.

And guess what?  All our car washes places are totally, totally green.

Because all California car washes use organically certified pure spring water.

So I am a “recent local” and do not know if you have certified springs here, but there is a big ocean right here and maybe you could certify the ocean.

And then you would have a green-sourced car wash.

Simple.
