MCA wash event to raise funds, spread message of eco-friendly carwashing
SEVERNA PARK, Md. — After raising $7,000 last year, the Mid-Atlantic Carwash Association (MCA) announced that this year’s Wash to Save the Bay event will take place June 7, according to a press release.
Participating washes will donate a portion of proceeds on June 7 to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, notes the release.
“This innovative program speaks to the important role professional carwashing plays in keeping soaps, road salts and other chemicals out of our waterways,” states the release. The article goes on to explain how many carwashes reclaim and reuse water and that professional carwashing is more environmentally friendly than washing at-home.
