Support the Mountains to Sound Greenway, wash your car on Earth Day

For every car washed on Earth Day – Monday – Brown Bear will donate $1 to the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust.

Brown Bear Car Wash has locations throughout the Puget Sound region, including Auburn at 814 Auburn Way S. and 3902 Auburn Way N., and Kent at 1202 W. Meeker St. and 1205 W. James St.

"We teach kids participating in the Greenway education program that it is best for our environment to clean cars at car wash facilities like Brown Bear that can handle waste water," said Kurt Fraese, Greenway Trust Education Committee Chair. "Young students learn about the importance of preserving clean air and clean water, and one way to do that is not to wash your car where soap and motor oil can run down the street and into a storm drain."
