Ventura Dirty Car Challenge 2014

Ventura Dirty Car Challenge 2014

Ventura Water has issued a Dirty Car Challenge 2014 for July. Post pics of your dirty car to their Facebook page and you may win a free car wash or a complete car detail by the end of the month.As you have most likely heard, California is in dire straits with their water situation.  Ventura residents are being asked to conserve as much water as possible, wherever possible.  That’s why the city has issued the Ventura Dirty Car Challenge 2014.

For the month of July, Ventura residents are asked to stop washing their cars, especially those people that wash their cars at home.  A typical Ventura home car wash will use up 80-150 gallons in just one wash.  When you go to a commercial car wash like Market St or Five Points, their machines only use around 45 gallons per car wash.  And, many commercial washes recycle their water, further lessening the amount of water resources utilized per vehicle.

Ventura Water is holding a free car wash giveaway.  All you have to do is like the Ventura Water Facebook page and post a picture of your very own dirty car.  If your picture gets the most “likes”, you will receive a free car wash from Five Points.  One free car wash will be given away each week.  Whoever gets the most “likes” by the end of July will receive a complete car detail courtesy of Five Points as well.  SoCal Auto Body and Camarillo Auto Body liked this idea so much, they have also thrown in one complete car detail each for the 2nd and 3rd most “liked” photos by the end of the month.

What is the point of the Ventura Dirty Car Challenge 2014?  As Ventura citizens, we need to examine how we currently use our water to find more efficient ways to utilize it in the future.  Water is a precious commodity.  It may sound silly to avoid washing your car for a couple of weeks.  However, when you multiply this small water savings by the millions of people that live in the Ventura area and throughout the entire state, you can see how much of an impact this will have.  We dare you to take the Ventura Dirty Car Challenge 2014 now.  The dirtier the car, the better!
