The techs at Eco Detailing Services refuse to clean cars with water. Instead, they use a waterless concoction that contains plant-based surfactants that oust grime and polymers that protect paint jobs from environmental assailants. They use this solution whenever they clean vehicles—whether cars, trucks, motorcycles, or tame dragons. While detailing, they also draw on a range of earth-friendly products with natural, nontoxic ingredients that are safe for kids and pets. When they aren't sponging and drying autos by hand, they work with local nonprofits and the American Red Cross.
Unlike most people, Shane Billington sees shattered glass as a stroke of luck. That’s because the auto specialist knows how to affix any gaping windows or busted side mirrors with a new pane that will ensure the structural integrity of each vehicle. He travels to customers to perform full window and windshield replacements or to patch up chips and cracks with high-quality resin that dries clear and won’t obstruct driver visibility like mending windows with paper-mâché will.
A ground-to-glass facility, Maine Distilleries controls every step of its small-batch production to create award-winning vodkas and gin. The process starts on a farm in Fryeburg, where the business grows its own Maine potatoes. Eventually, those potatoes are combined with water sourced from the Cold River, and after three rounds of distillation, the final, gluten-free product lands inside hand-numbered bottles. Maine Distilleries' spirits are available in 26 states, and its highly detailed process has even been featured on the History Channel.
