When it's time to wash your car, a professional car wash is the greenest choice. The Environmental Protection Agency says automated car washes are not only the most water- and energy-efficient method, but they also properly dispose of and recycle wastewater. If you want to wash your car at home, do it on gravel or grass; runoff water on pavement doesn't get filtered and can pollute waterways. Allowing wastewater to filter through dirt and gravel can minimize pollution.
