In order to solve any problem there has to be a plan on how to do so. Once the mission is established, the problem is identified, & accurate data has been gathered a strategy on how to accomplish the given mission can be developed. After we look the Texas Water Development Board strategy created for Grayson County, Texas The Green Miyagi's contibution to the strategy implementation will be given and explained.
There is no single solution to our water problem, but TGM offers a piece of the solution that is both simple and achievable. To arrive there we look first at the strategy that is to guide us there.
SO WHAT IS THE STRATEGY?
"What we need to do is always lean into the future; when the world changes around you and when it changes against you - what used to be a tail wind is now a head wind - you have to lean into that and figure out what to do because complaining isn't a strategy."-Jeff Bezos
"Brands must empower their community to be change agents in their own right. To that end, they need to take on a mentoring role. This means the brand provides the tools, techniques and strategies for their customers to become more effective marketers in achieving their own goals."-Simon Mainwaring

The image is of our projected water needs in Grayson County, Texas. Compare it to the projected strategy supplies info at the to of this page. The reason this data is so utterly important is because our water needs far outweight our water supply, and it is only if the strategy supplied are met through taking the appropriate actions as individuals within our communities that the implemented strategy can be achieved.
THIS IS TO SAY THAT IF WE DO NOT SUCCEED BY REACHING THE STRATEGY PROJECTIONS THEN WE DO NOT MEET WATER NEEDS AND THUS FALL INCREASINGLY MORE SHORT ON MUNICIPAL WATER SUPPLIES GOING FORWARD.
The only thing that can prevent our failure is our own actions by becoming a more highly conservative community.
THIS IS WHY OUR WATER STRATEGY CAN NOT BE IGNORED OR ITS INSTRUCTIONS MUST BE PRACTICED!
Image and data chart from and can be found at:
Our local WATER PLAN STRATEGY for 2020 displayed above relies overwhelmingly on using less water as the primary method strategized to ensure water supply remains sufficient for the population. Almost 3/4 of the share for both Water Resource and Strategy Type involves finding ways to use less water as a community both by demand reduction & conservation of water of our current water supply. Additional surface water is the only other significant tactic to SAVE OUR WATER.
As this information clearly shows the responsibility of ensuring water requirements for our children & every generation going forward rests ALMOST ENTIRELY on us as INDIVIDUALS to meet water needs by behaving in-line with our strategy in our day-to-day activities regarding everything water related in any way.
The Green Miyagi Contribution We Can All Participate in Implementing
Is Through Our Waterless & Non-Toxic To Water Service Delivery Is As Follows:
The image to the left can be found in one of TWDB (Texas Water Development Board) water conservation tip brochures. It shows the conservation tip section regarding Vehicle Washing.
TWDB provides consideration of Waterless Washing Techniques as a tip, but to list waterless wash as a necessity for the 'luxury' of cleaning cars would better serve our population's needs while providing Generation Z futures much more justice.
Waterless Wash Technology is The Green Miyagi's specialization, and in fact the only method ever used in TGM Auto Details.
☔︎ - U.S. car wash data varies slightly from source to source, but a review of recent research finds:
☔︎ - Car Wash/Detail is approx. a $12 Billion a year industry.
☔︎ - Car Wash/Detail is increasing in popularity with approx. 4% industry growth per year.
☔︎ - The image shown above lists common method water use.
☔︎ - Depending on the method used a car wash requires between 20 and 200 gallons, but on average uses about 40 gallons/wash.
☔︎ - Grayson County, TX contains about 47 thousand households averaging 2 cars per household.
SO TO ESTIMATE (CONSERVATIVELY) WATER USAGE
☔︎ - About 95,000 cars in Grayson County.
☔︎ - Some data suggests (reasonable to believe) the average car is washed 11 times/year.
☔︎ - 95,000 cars TIMES 11 washes/year TIMES 40 gal/wash EQUALS:
☔︎ - Forty-one million eight hundred thousand (41,800,000) gallons used cleaning Grayson County, Texas cars yearly.
☔︎ - 41,800,000 gallons/year EQUALS 128.36 acre-feet/year WATER USED BY TRADITIONAL WASH & DETAIL METHODS.
☔︎ - Contrast this number with Waterless methods only water used:
☔︎ - One million forty-five thousand (1,045,000) gallons or only 3.209 acre-feet/year WATER USED.
☔︎ - THIS EQUALS an INCREDIBLE 40,755,000 GALLONS or 125.151 ACRE-FEET/YEAR of WATER supply POTENTIALLY CONSERVED using TGM Waterless Wash & Detail Method.
"I believe that every single one of us, celebrity or not, has a responsibility to get involved in trying to make a difference in the world. Our generation faces many challenges, some of which were passed on to us by the past generations, but it's up to us to find solutions today so that we don't keep passing our problems on". Shakira
Feel free to check my calculations. My numbers are assuming that TGM eco-safe and environmentally sustainable waterless wash & detail completely replaces water wasting car cleaning as it is now practiced. This is the ideal result of TGM's part of the solution. Each and every replacement of a water wash with TGM waterless wash & detail improves water projections however. As the last line added to the chart indicates anywhere from 15% to 100% of the demand reduction posed by the TWDB Strategy for any given period. This really illuminates the amount of pride we take in our vehicles being clean and beautiful. It also shines light on how much our water supply and the beauty of our natural environment suffers from our pride in our rides, but this doesn't have to be the case for any longer we can halt this destructive behavior without sacrificing the cleanliness of our cars & trucks. :)
Each individual in our community who chooses to take advantage of the service TGM offers contributes to the solution of realizing a Gen Z future free of, or less burdened by threat of drinking water supplies failing to meet the everyday survival needs of all future populations of humans in Grayson County, Texas. I hope this is as clear to see and understand as i believe and intend it to be. Please feel free to contact me for further clarification or additional data if needed. :)
