SAN DIEGO — In connection with Earth Day on April 22, San Diego Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer has officially proclaimed April 21, 2016, as Soapy Joe’s Car Wash Day, according to a press release.

The proclamation was made in recognition of Soapy Joe’s conservation efforts, stated the release, and honors the carwash’s commitment to environmentally friendly operations.

“Sustainability has always been a top priority for us,” said Lorens Attisha, CEO of Soapy Joe’s, in the release.

The carwash focuses its efforts on water, continued the article, which is one of the area’s most important natural resource.

Soapy Joe’s aims to conserve water daily by using recycling, filtration and innovative technology, reported the release.

“We use a state-of-the-art water recycling system that reclaims 20 gallons of the 30 used per wash,” stated Attisha in the release. “That 30 gallons is only about one-fifth of the 140 gallons used when washing vehicles at home.”

Moreover, informed the release, Soapy Joe’s cleaning products are biodegradable and pH balanced to a neutral state during the wash process.

The dirt and grime rinsed from the cars is processed by facilities, added the release, which convert it to beneficial materials, such as fertilizer or potting soil.

To celebrate Soapy Joe’s Car Wash Day, stated the release, the carwash will offer top-of-the-line washes for free at all eight of its locations on April 21.

Customers can secure a free wash via an online coupon available on the company’s website, added the release.

Soapy Joe’s, a family-owned and operated carwash with eight locations throughout San Diego County, offers express carwash services and oil changes, noted the release.
