Kevin L. Faulconer, mayor of San Diego, proclaimed April 20th, 2017 “Soapy Joe’s Car Wash Day” in honor of the company’s commitment to environmental sustainability in the San Diego community. In celebration of this honor, Soapy Joe’s will be offering free car washes to the public all day on April 20th, and will give away free annual memberships to three winners of the company’s “Stay Clean, Go Green” social media contest. To further demonstrate its dedication to the environment and the San Diego community, Soapy Joe’s will be donating money to the San Diego Surfrider Foundation, a nonprofit that protects the ocean and coastlines of San Diego.
“We truly do everything we can to protect our beautiful San Diego community, and we are honored to be recognized for environmental sustainability. We want our customers to feel good about washing at Soapy Joe’s, and know that we care about this community as much as they do,” says Soapy Joe’s Car Wash CEO, Lorens Attisha.
The city of San Diego proclaimed April 20th “Soapy Joe’s Car Wash Day” to recognize the company’s sustainability efforts within the San Diego community, such as the company’s eco-friendly technology, use of biodegradable chemicals, and efforts to conserve and recycle water. Not only is the city of San Diego recognizing this holiday, but neighboring communities such as La Mesa, San Marcos, and Oceanside have proclaimed April 20th as “Soapy Joe’s Car Wash Day” as well, acknowledging the company’s service and sustainability efforts in local communities.
Water conservation is a top environmental concern for the San Diego community, and Soapy Joe’s has addressed this by equipping each car wash with the most innovative water reclamation technology in the industry. This technology recycles water and filters it for future use, allowing them to save about 20 gallons of fresh water per wash. An average at-home car wash uses about 140 gallons of water, whereas a wash at Soapy Joe’s uses only 30 gallons. This means a wash at Soapy Joe’s saves nearly 80% of the water used at home, preserving San Diego’s most precious natural resource.
Keeping local waterways clean and chemical-free is key to protecting local wildlife and maintaining a healthy community. Unlike an at-home car wash where untreated and chemical-filled water drains straight into local waterways, the water that is not reclaimed at Soapy Joe’s is treated and sent to sanitary sewer systems for further processing. This prevents lakes, rivers, and oceans from being polluted with chemicals, as well as protecting local wildlife. Soapy Joe’s also uses only biodegradable chemicals, which are pH balanced to a neutral state during the wash process and do not harm the environment. The dirt and grime that is washed from cars is collected and sent…
