Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2009
Long Beach City's Police Department and Freedom Waterless Car Wash announce a partnership in a pilot program to clean their Black and White police vehicles spotless and shiny using NO WATER.
On October 29th, 10am, Thursday, on the steps of Long Long Beach City Hall will be the formal unveiling and announcement of the Freedom Waterless Car Wash Pilot Program in partnership with Long Beach City Police Department.
With the cooperation of Mayor Bob Foster's Office of Sustainability, City of Long Beach and the guidance of Meredith Reynolds, Long Beach City's Sustainability Coordinator, and David Elliott, Founder of Freedom Waterless Carwash, the city's finest have agreed to roll out a pilot program whereby their current method of hand washing police cars will be substituted with Freedom Waterless Carwash.
Freedom Waterless Car Wash is a 99% biodegradable cleaning product that effectively cleans vehicles in an ultra eco-friendly way. Each car will be cleaned using two plush, microfiber towels and 2-5 ounces of cleaning product made from a special blend of water, soaps, lubricants, waxes and polymers. The towels can be washed in the washing machine and be used over and over again.
Car washing by hand can use up to 80-140 gallons per wash.* [From the International Carwash Association]. Commercial car washes use approximately 45 gallons of water per car wash. The runoff from hand car washing contains contaminated water laden with harmful chemicals, soaps and oils from road grime that gets stuck to the vehicle while driving. This contaminated water can leach directly into the soil and eventually into local waterways, thus creating environmental damage and polluting our precious watershed systems. Most commercial car washes flush the used "grey water" into the sanitary system, creating more water and chemicals to process.
Freedom Waterless Carwash creates NO toxic runoff and only uses a few ounces water to clean, polish and protect the vehicle. The vehicles will stay clean longer due to the anti-static properties in the formula and result in fewer cleanings per month. This will save time, money and effort maintaining the cleanliness of the fleet. A minimum of 50 Police cars will be washed using this method per week.

"In January 2009, we revamped and improved the entire Freedom product line-up. We started using 'food grade dyes,' and passed a biodegradability test with a result of 99% "readily" biodegradable. Now Freedom Waterless Carwash cleans and shines better than ever. It goes on easier and repels dust and dirt for weeks. We have also added the Freedom Complete Clean All Purpose "Greener" Cleaner to the family of Freedom products. This amazing product not only removes bugs, tar and brake dust, but it can even clean carpets and upholstery." - David Elliott, Founder/Co-Owner, Freedom Waterless Carwash.
"We have vast knowledge and expertise in logistics, research & development and environmental protection guidelines. We have two teams of environmentally compliant chemists who develop, test and certify all of our products."
"There are close to a billion vehicles in America and billions more worldwide. The demand for a "friendlier to the environment" high performance waterless car wash product line is ENORMOUS! We are ready, set up and extremely capable of filling this ever-growing demand." - David Elliott, Founder/Co-Owner, Freedom Waterless Carwash
California, in particular Southern California, is in a declared state of drought and has committed to take necessary actions to reduce their use of water and practice conservation efforts whenever possible. This is a stated goal of both the Governor of California, the Mayor of Long Beach City and the Metropolitan Water District of Los Angeles County.
Governor Schwarzenegger, just last week, announced California's Green Cities website, http://www.greencitiescalifornia.org/
"As California continues to lead our nation in green technology and sustainability, it is essential that our cities and local governments step up and take the lead as well…". Governor Schwarzenegger http://www.greencitiescalifornia.org/transportation
The California Department of Conservation (DOC) has also implemented the Emerald Cities Program which is an innovative, public-private partnership, designed to achieve California's aggressive resource conservation and environmental goals. Through hands-on technical and financial assistance, the program will help local and regional communities become more environmentally sustainable and become part of the effort to meet the state's environmental, energy and economic priorities.
Emerald Cities Pilot Program expands the focus to other environmental priorities including water conservation, energy efficiency, improved air quality, and protection of agricultural and open space lands.
