Laundry – it never ends so making sure it has less of an impact on the environment is a very worthwhile thing to do. You save money, time, and the environment you need to live in.
You can clean up your laundry act and move to a more sustainable way of washing clothes. With a few modifications to how you do this task, you can keep those loads going, but do less damage in the process. The first trick is to keep the washing machine temperature cold or at 30 degrees max. About 90 percent of the energy burned up doing laundry is in heating up the water. You can also save on energy by not using the dryer. If the weather is ok, hang the laundry up to dry. There’s nothing quite like laundry dried outside either.
If the time has come to replace your machine, then consider an energy efficient one when you buy. This will reduce your bills and ensure your laundry burns less energy and water resources in future.
