Colors On Parade is the leader in environmental responsibility within the mobile automotive reconditioning industry. From its inception, Colors On Parade sought not only a process that provided superior results, but also one that would endure as the cleanest, and most environmentally safe, system imaginable.
Careful attention is continually given to the type of equipment and materials used, the training of technicians, the amount of materials used, and the disposal of waste. Because of our highly conscientious approach, an independent research lab confirmed that our out-of-doors method creates less impact to the environment than even fixed-site operations.
Consider one simple example: Someone has badly scraped the corner of the bumper on a new car. What are the options for repair?
- Remove and replace the bumper. Bumper ends up in a landfill. New bumper will be painted, using a large volume of paint-related material. Unused material will be discarded.
- An independent mobile painter will use high volume spray equipment. Probably 50% of the material will be released into the atmosphere. Paint and related chemicals will be discarded somehow.
- A Colors On Parade franchisee will place a drop cloth under the repair area to capture any and all waste, preventing run-off into sewers and local water supplies. Our low-VOC (Volatile Organic Chemicals) paint will be prepared in an amount equal to the need. High-volume/low-pressure spray equipment will be used for 90% efficiency. Finally, an ounce or less of unused paint (on average) will be discarded in strict adherence to all national and local codes.

"If you run your business to save a dollar instead of the environment, you may one day wake up to find you no longer possess either one."
