People Served

What is your wish for this project?

I wish that all people would stop washing their cars in the driveway, wasting the water and polluting the watershed with oils and other debris sent down storm drains from the water.

How did it go?

It went really well! My neighbors all listened to what I had to say. We made a flyer that described the problem with urban runoff from car washing and we described ways they could make their car wash practices more "green". This includes 1) Washing your car on a permeable surface that is flat like grass or dirt. 2) Dont use water! There are several green products that can be purchased or even made that you spray on your car and wash with a rag rather than washing it in tons of more
