Change things up in your laundry room
One small area where individuals can make a big impact is in their choices about how they do laundry. Quick, cost-saving changes you can make today include using cold water and line drying.
Several of our sisters have been using plastic-free laundry sheets and wool dryer balls for a while. We’ve put together a list of eco-friendly items recommended by our sisters, associates and partners in mission, which you can find on our Recommended Sustainable Products page. Click on the drop-down box labeled “Eco-Friendly Laundry Products.”
The Saga of Snappy Shirt
Follow Snappy Shirt through its laundry cycle below.
Snappy Shirt gets washed in cold water, saving energy; using detergent sheets, cutting out plastic and reducing shipping impacts; follows that by a tumble dry with wool dryer balls, eliminating fabric softener. Snappy Shirt looks forward to line drying in the future to save all the energy used by the dryer.
