CHATTANOOGA, TN, (WDEF),Running a successful car cleaning business and reducing water usage are the aims of Beau Gilliland co-founder of Chattanooga Detail.
Beau Gilliland, "It's all about having a lower carbon footprint using less water, being a steward of the things we have been given, utilizing the spaces that we have."
Beua's business partner David Hopkins feels local businesses have a big role to play in conserving the environment.
"Well as a business you have a much larger footprint than as an individual, so your reach and impact far exceeds that of standing alone as one person".
The duo have recently purchased a steam cleaner that they say while not popular in Tennessee is being used by similar businesses in California.
