From building material selection to interior air quality, low energy use, and water efficiency, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified buildings represent a considerable commitment to environmental sustainability and responsible practices.
We’ve already touched on car washes’ superior water reclamation systems, features that make car washes a much more water efficient option for responsible vehicle cleaning vs. driveway washing (particularly in drought areas). But there’s another great reason for you to turn to your local car wash instead of the hose and bucket: water runoff.
With droughts, energy rationing, and strict local codes in many areas, a green facility can be a major asset during planning and negotiation processes, or simply when paying your utility bill. On the flip side, more and more US federal and state legislative agreements have opened tax breaks to industries and businesses like car washes for water reclamation, renewable energy use, emissions control, recycling, and more.
