Investing in a clothesline, opting for a more energy efficient washer, or even making your own soap are just a few ways to help to make laundry an environmentally friendly activity
Weather permitting, why not skip the dryer for that fresh air smell?
Remember, as a kid, that amazing smell of laundry fresh off the line? There’s something about this time of year that makes me long for a clothesline. Even in a city – with its occasionally less than fresh air – I still love the idea of folding my sun-stiffened towels and knowing I let the breeze do the work.
Even something as simple as washing and drying our clothes can have an impact on the environment. First there is the power we need to run the machines. Then there are the detergents, stain removers, bleaches and fabric softeners we use when washing and drying clothes.
But a few simple changes can decrease our impact significantly. Here are some sustainable and environmentally friendly things you can do when washing your clothes.
Skip the drier and head to my new favourite website, Urban Clothesline or check out Stenic Products (which is also pretty cool) and find just the right clothesline for your life.
Keep in mind the clothesline has really evolved since the ’70s, and there are now options that include retractable, wall mounted, ceiling dryers and more.
