Lance Winslow's Environmental Work in Industry


First, understand that all too often "Commercial Enterprise" is demonized by environmentalists. Here is a reply from Lance to just such a detractor that goes into a tirade against business over environmental issues.


Karishma States in the original post;

“In this world of cutthroat competition and rapid industrialization, sometimes I tend to wonder on how the importance and relevance of environmental effects is completely lost.”

I take exception to your comments. Personally I feel you are attacking me. I am an entrepreneur. I win markets, I participate in free markets, I deliver the goods and services that you as a citizen desire. You want it; I produce it. Yes I am competitive and yes I as an entrepreneur compete and yes I win. Now in my retirement I moderate this Think Tank Online Forum; but during my reign in my Industry that cutthroat competition propelled me to help the environment and compete. And do it more efficiently as well; let me give you some examples. As you trash verbally everything I am about and condemn me the entrepreneur. I believe you should read Ayn Rand. Here is just a few things I brought to the common good in the “Environmental Realm” in my industry;

First we helped develop the Environmental Policies in my Industry, now used nationwide and copied by other nations too. We also were constantly up on the “Research on BMPs to Comply with NPDES Permitting for Mobile Washers.” My company is a Mobile Carwash Franchise and we wash all sorts of other stuff too and always has strong environmental policies and cleaned up our industry as well.

We always complied with all EPA and local NPDES Permitting. Here are some posts and web pages, not in any particular order you may wish to view on the subject of the EPA requirements and innovations at my company; WashGuys:

Two devices we have invented:

Invented By: .

We have done other things to such as:

"Lance [me] worked with the County of Ventura to design a NPDES permit for the Regional Water Quality Control Board in California to comply with the EPA federal Clean Water Act. He wrote many of the Best Management Practices for surface cleaners, a category in which mobile carwash and detailers fall into for storm water non-point source discharges. These same BMPs are now used all over the United States to help preserve our fresh water supply. Lance was recognized by the City of Los Angeles for their storm water discharge program. Lance wrote a manual for the cities program, which allowed continued car wash fundraising efforts to exist even though at the time they were in conflict with the California Water Codes 13260-13280. Wash Guys BMPs are also available online through many governmental informational web sites. The City of Nashville, TN has linked their web site to WashGuys procedures as a way to help others comply with real environmental concerns." And here are several current projects: and and and and and and and and

and As you can see, in our industry we are so far ahead of the curve in environmental washing we have left everyone in the dust. Also in washing technologies for water efficiency, we can wash cars with 2.4 - 4.0 gallons of water. The impending drought will be no problem as we expand our operations to wash everything in the world. .

Here are some links of value for you: and and and and and and and and and and and and and and and and and and and and and

and this will be of interest to you. Pictures of competition in various states. We wrote most of the environmental rules that are used around the US for Non-point source discharges back in the 1980's and 1990’s in CA. Now these BMPs are used throughout the Nation. Not only do we comply with all environmental laws we exceed them.

-------------- ----------- -----------

So I very much take exception for your broad-brush painting of competition as “evil” as competition brings lower prices, efficiencies and abundance to markets. It delivers everything you see everywhere you go. Who do you think build all this anyway? We did, entrepreneurs and capitalists! And the USA is a competitive market, but we also have clean water here and a clean environment and it is the same innovative spirit, which will keep our environment strong. Your statement sounds Anti-American, Anti-Capitalism, Anti-Free Markets and I ask you to retract it, as you have offended my life’s work. Tell us what you have done to help the environment while you condemn competition, capitalism and blame me and those like me for the Earth's woes.

The Entrepreneur
