Clean Cars, Clean Oceans: The BLISS Car Wash Commitment to Coastal Conservation
By Ash Delrahim, Vice President of Operations, and Vahid David Delrahim, CEO of BLISS Car Wash
The breathtaking beauty of our oceans has always captivated humanity. From the shimmering turquoise waters to the diverse marine life that inhabits them, our oceans are truly a marvel. However, the increasing threat of pollution and environmental degradation has cast a shadow over this natural wonder. At BLISS Car Wash, we believe that our commitment to raising awareness about coastal conservation can play a pivotal role in ensuring the harmonious coexistence of clean cars and clean oceans.
The oceans and our daily lives are intricately connected. As we enjoy the convenience of our cars, we must also be conscious of the environmental impact they can have. Traditional car wash products often contain harmful chemicals that eventually enter our water systems. Algae blooms, fueled by these pollutants, disrupt aquatic ecosystems and create “dead zones” where marine life cannot survive. This toxic cycle threatens the delicate balance of our oceans.
The BLISS Difference: Biodegradable and Phosphorus-Free
At BLISS Car Wash, we recognize the importance of breaking this cycle and embracing responsible practices. Our car wash products are not only 100% biodegradable but also completely free of phosphorus. This deliberate choice ensures that our products break down naturally and do not contribute to harmful algae blooms that plague our waters. By using our services, car owners become part of a larger movement to protect the oceans for future generations.
As a testament to our dedication, we have implemented innovative solutions to minimize our environmental footprint. Our settlement tanks, nestled beneath our car wash tunnels, are silent guardians of our oceans. These tanks are designed to capture over 90% of all the soaps and products we use, preventing them from entering our sewage systems and, ultimately, our oceans.
Imagine the difference this makes. Picture the sludge that accumulates on dirty cars – it’s a combination of dirt, grime, and pollutants. Our settlement tanks effectively separate these solids, ensuring they do not contribute to the degradation of aquatic environments. It’s a small but significant step toward restoring the health of our oceans.
Here is a video that takes you behind the scenes at BLISS Car Wash. It showcases our settlement tanks in action, emphasizing how they contribute to our larger mission of coastal conservation. By witnessing the process firsthand, we hope to inspire everyone to be more mindful of their car washing choices.
