Have you ever stopped to consider what the environmental effects of doing laundry are? The truth is, they are more staggering than you’d imagine. Inefficient laundering habits expend unnecessary energy, water-waste, CO2, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), making the laundry room one of the most toxic rooms in your house.


Small changes in your habits can have a hugely positive impact on the environment. We have TEN eco-friendly laundry tips to help you minimize the effects of your home.


Use cold water when washing.

This will save a considerable amount of energy and extend the lifespan on your clothes.


Hang dry your laundry

when possible. The dryer uses the second most energy of your household appliances, behind the fridge. It also can emit 25 VOCs and hazardous air pollutants. By foregoing the dryer, you can save money and help the environment. Talk about a win-win!

Wear your clothes and use your towels more than once before laundering.
