The Great Laundry Debate

Laundry is a chore that most people would like to forget, and in many instances halfway through the chore people do forget! Re-drying the laundry to remove wrinkles instead of actually removing the clothes from the dryer and drying the comforter numerous times because it never gets dry enough; these are all common problems that people face when doing the laundry. Among the appliances in your home, dryers use the most electricity, making them one of the least environmentally friendly.
One way to reduce your ecological footprint is discovering alternative ways to dry your laundry. Project Laundry List is attempting to make air-drying and cold-water washing laundry acceptable and desirable as a simple and effective way to save energy. The program focuses on educating people about why they should use clotheslines and other non-dryer techniques. They have also used advocacy as a technique in recent accomplishments, such as the Right to Dry legislation that is attempting to make it possible for people to use clotheslines in areas they were previously banned from using. This awesome program hopes to continue to create positive change that will better the environment.
