Local Business Leader David Delrahim Opens Eco-Conscious Bliss Car Wash

Pledges Fresh Water Donation To Wells Bring Hope

LOS ANGELES, March 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Los Angeles based Bliss Car Wash today announced the Orange County launch of its Bliss car wash brand, an eco-friendly chain of car washes sensitive to water usage and environmental factors. In a ribbon-cutting ceremony yesterday with local Placentia officials, CEO and Founder David Delrahim pledged to donate a new fresh-water well to the nonprofit, Wells Bring Hope, each time he opens a new car wash. The Placentia car wash, at 600 N. Rose Drive, is the first in a line of many car washes expected to open under the Bliss brand name in California. The brand is founded by Delrahim, a California businessman and philanthropist.

Delrahim and the Bliss company chose to work with the nonprofit, Wells Bring Hope because of its mission of drilling wells to bring safe water to rural villages in Niger, West Africa.

“Fresh water is a precious resource, especially here in Southern California. While our business practices at Bliss are set with water conservation in mind, our giving practices are geared toward helping people who badly need fresh water just to live,” said Delrahim.

“We are grateful to David Delrahim, who is helping us with our critical mission to save lives and empower people by bridging the gap between clean water and healthy living in Niger, West Africa,” said Barbara Goldberg, Founder and President of Wells Bring Hope.

The Bliss car wash model was conceived by David Delrahim, who is passionate about the environment and water conservation. The new Bliss car washes use technology that constantly monitors fresh water usage, keeping it down to approximately 24 gallons per car wash, and using 68 percent reclaimed water. The company also only uses cleaning products that are biodegradable and utilizes low-energy consuming machinery.

Vahid David Delrahim is a Los Angles based businessman and philanthropist and has nearly three decades of experience in the car wash industry.   Water's crucial role in accomplishing the world’s development goals is widely recognized. Africa faces endemic poverty, food insecurity and pervasive underdevelopment, with almost all countries lacking the human, economic and institutional capacities to effectively develop and manage their water resources sustainably.  David is passionate about changing communities for the better and creating economic opportunities for the people of Niger by connecting them to clean potable water.
