* Wash your car on the grass.

This will give the grass a drink, the soil will help to break down impurities and prevent the water from entering storm water drains and winding up in local waterways. Some of the chemicals in car wash detergents are nutrients for algae; so this water getting into waterways can add to algae bloom and eutrophication problems.
