It seems that almost every day we are hearing something new about how our actions are affecting the earth and the environment. Though there is a wide spectrum of theories and beliefs, no matter what your opinion is about the environment or climate one thing almost everyone will agree on is that it is important to invest in our planet and preserve it for future generations.
At Halo, we sat down and looked at the options for how we approached our detailing process. Being eco-friendly, or going green, isn’t always convenient. We could use more water to save time and get details done faster. We could use cheaper products that contain chemicals in order to save money. Why wouldn’t we do that? The short answer is that we care. We see the droughts around the world and all the people who don’t have access to clean water, so why waste what we have? We have also experienced first-hand some of the dangerous chemicals that many detailers will use (I for one have had bumps and boils on my skin due to some products) so why continue to put those harmful chemicals around other people and into our environment? At Halo, we are committed to bettering society as a whole, which means we also need to take care of the environment and the people in it.
What does this mean for you? Well, a lot, actually. By choosing to get a detail from Halo instead of a normal car wash or even other detailers, you’re helping conserve one of Earth’s best and most important resources — water. Halo’s ‘waterless’ details use under one gallon of water per vehicle as opposed to the average of nearly 45 gallons that are used by an automated wash (or up to 100 gallons washing in your driveway!). That means you’re personally stopping anywhere from 49-79 gallons of contaminated water from entering our ecosystem — Nemo will love you! Furthermore, we refuse to use toxic chemicals or acids that like to eat away at anything they touch. Instead, we use citrus-based cleaners and our wash is 100% biodegradable, meaning you can rest assured that you and your family are completely safe.
We know and understand that there are much more important things in life than a clean car. Call us anytime to set up a detail and trust us to take care of your car so you can get back to focusing on what’s more important.
