Environmental Supports

Fish-Friendly Car Wash Kits: When holding car washes in parking lots or paved areas the soapy, grimy water goes down a storm drain, directly into our community’s rivers and streams without treatment. The soap, dirt, and oil that is in the water can be very harmful to fish and other aquatic life. The cities of Springfield and Eugene have car wash kits available to non-profit groups, free of charge, that will keep the soapy water from your fundraiser out of our local waterways.
