It’s one of my main purposes in life to spread the word, as efficiently as I can, about how precious our planet is and how it’s so important to protect it for ourselves, our children, their children and for many, many generations to come. Imagine how delighted I am to report on a new family business that is totally dedicated to green principles. It is a business I intend to frequently patronize. By using their service, I too will be a better citizen, and that makes me feel doubly good.
The business – LuLu’s Car Wash, conveniently located near Landshark Stadium on 17551 NW 27th Avenue in Miami Gardens.
Being a new member of the North Dade Regional Chamber of Commerce, some fellow board members and I attended their recent Grand Opening and Ribbon-Cutting. Not only did I get the cleanest, shiniest car ever, but the whole process took three minutes and cost me less than I have spent in a long, long time.
My car was washed, waxed, polished, triple-foam conditioned, RainX applied, had super wheel brightener, tires shined and totally dried in under three minutes, without ever having to leave my car (bring your kids, it’ll be fun). All this and a 24 hour guarantee should it rain that day.
When I was through, I had the opportunity to have my car totally vacuumed and mats washed – free. (And, if one is elderly or disabled, that service will be rendered by an attendant – free).
Let’s get into the why LuLu’s is so special:
[list type="star" ]
[li]All chemicals used are Armorall Professional brand – safe for the vehicle and safe for the environment.[/li]
[li]The entire cleaning process is computerized – no waste of water, no waste of chemicals, no waste of energy. Each stage only becomes activated as vehicle approaches that stage.[/li]
[li]No more chemicals, brake dust, grime going into the drains that lead to canals, bay, river and ocean.[/li]
[li]No more waste of water. LuLu’s has a its own water plant on site (a reclamation and recycling system). Then the water is recaptured, cleansed, processed and reused.[/li]
Here’s a fine green-oriented trivia question for you (answers in parentheses). What is one of our most precious commodities? (Water). What is the amount of water generally used to wash a car at home? (150 gallons). What is the amount of water used to wash a car at LuLu’s? (8 gallons – and, unlike at your home – these gallons get reprocessed and reused).
In addition to leaving a smaller footprint every time you patronize LuLu’s, you will also be saving money. Imagine – from $5 for a super clean car to $10 for the total protection package.
When I mentioned this is a family business, you can take me literally. Angel Canete and daughter Lourdes Wydra have partnered-up with cousins Alex Rubio and daughter Vivian Bonet Rubio. From the concept stage, they had a dream to have a totally green, environmentally-friendly, cost-efficient facility. Mission accomplished! Fortunate for all,
Angel was VP of Manufacturing for the largest car wash equipment manufacturing company in the country.
