Those of you who have purchased a Tesla have taken a step in investing in the future of our planet. You are no longer bound by a dependence on oil. Fluctuating gas prices have no impact on the wallets of those of you driving these innovative electric vehicles. Earth conscious Tesla owners in California may now have an opportunity to be even more environmentally friendly.

As detailed in this Forbes article, Tesla is testing a partnership with Eco Green Auto Clean. Eco Green Auto Clean is an environmentally safe line of auto wash products. Made with coconut oil and other natural plant-based ingredients, it only uses a single cup of water per wash. The product is manufactured in Amsterdam. The CEO of Eco Green, Anton Van Happen, is familiar with the global market having been born in Hong Kong, raised throughout Europe, and educated in California. The company has a distribution warehouse near San Francisco. Anyone can take their car into the Redwood City, CA showroom and have it washed with the Eco Green Auto Clean system.

The benefit is not only ecologically and environmentally friendly, but also safe for the car’s finish. Other car washes claim to make every effort to conserve water, primarily by recycling water. Recycling is a great conservation method but can create some potential problems for a car’s finish. Recycled water could contain debris which can occasionally cause scratches to a car’s finish and even create the appearance of swirl like patterns in the paint job. The Eco Green products, one cup of water, and a microfiber cloth pose no risk of scratching the clear coat.
This program is in its infancy in a preliminary pilot stage and currently only available at Tesla’s Fremont Factory (roughly half an hour north of San Jose). If the partnership becomes official and the program expands, a car wash service could be added to all of the Supercharger Stations. Tesla Owners would likely pay through a subscription service costing approximately $90. One big perk is that this will happen during your 30-minute charge time, your Tesla will be returned to you sparkling clean and without a single scratch.
