When you wash at Time to Shine, you're helping conserve water and dispose of soap and chemicals through environmentally safe methods. It's true - pollution generated from a driveway car wash goes down storm drains - meaning untreated chemicals are discharged into area streams and rivers. Time to Shine uses biodegradable chemicals. They dispose of their waste by removing most solids and directly disposing of the remaining liquids into the sanitary sewer system where they are properly treated and processed. They also recycle 80% of the water used through a PurWater Reclaim System. So with Time to Shine, not only are you doing something good for your car, you're doing something good for the environment!
