The CCA is working with municipalities on the local level and engaging in community affairs in an effort to spread the word about environmental carwashing practices. That’s why, on June 13, the CCA and 27 carwashes in the City of London participated in the Protect Our Environment Carwash Event. A portion of the proceeds from the carwashes, which totaled $8,350, was donated to the London Food Bank as part of the 17th annual London Cares Curbside Food Drive.
Participating CCA carwashes:
Petro-Canada (11 sites)
Shell Canada (7 sites)
Auto Spa Self Serve Carwash (2 sites)
Miami Carwash (2 sites)
Elegance Auto Spa (1 site)
Buffers Auto Clean (1 site)
Husky (1 site)
Pioneer Energy (1 site)
Springbank Coin-Op Carwash (1 site)
Participation in the event is part of the CCA’s campaign to inform consumers and municipal leaders about the environmental benefits of professional carwashing over driveway carwashing.
The CCA is encouraging other municipalities to hold similar events across the country. Visit canadiancarwash.ca for more information or to get your community involved!
