Mobile auto detailing service becomes the first car wash approved by Green America's National Green Pages™. To qualify, businesses must demonstrate "extraordinary practices that benefit...the environment." Advanced Mobile, LLC reduces carbon footprints, creates "'green jobs", and conserves water. The Advanced Mobile Eco-Clean System could save 60 billion gallons of water and 400 million pounds of CO2 emissions annually.

Advanced Mobile, LLC, a provider of auto detailing services, announces their acceptance by the 2009 National Green Pages™. To qualify and carry Green America's Seal of Approval, Advanced Mobile passed a comprehensive review demonstrating a "values-driven" organization, "principles of social justice and environmental sustainability", and commitment to "extraordinary practices that benefit workers, customers, communities, and the environment."

"We filled this niche long before global warming, world water crises, and historic unemployment became daily headlines," said Doug Nafziger, CEO. "Washing cars by hand is a simple task - but customers appreciate we can help curb their carbon footprint while creating 'green jobs' and conserving water. We are proud to be the first car wash service recognized in the 25 year history of the National Green Pages. It is encouraging to be acknowledged for our efforts; and with National Car Care Month and Earth Day - April is a great time to share the news."

According to Nafziger, "Our process is nearly 1,000 times more efficient than a conventional carwash - 30 car washes per gallon versus 30 gallons per car wash - so even those with their own facility can save substantially. These water savings result in a 99% reduction in the associated CO2 emissions. Applied nationwide, our method would save 60 billion gallons of water and 400 million pounds of CO2 emissions every year."

Advanced Mobile's Eco-Clean System conserves 90% of the water required by conventional car washing. In 2008, Advanced Mobile needed just 335 gallons of a patented soap and water mixture to wash 10,000 vehicles in Seattle, Chicago, and Portland. That is 300,000+ gallons less water than required by car wash facilities requiring 30 gallons or more for every car washed.

Advanced Mobile has previously been recognized for its sustainable practices. They are the first vehicle cleaning service recognized as a national EPA Water Efficiency Leader, and the only car wash certified as a green business by King County EnviroStars.
