Are You Washing in Cold Water?

Did you know that nearly 90% of the energy the washing machine uses goes towards heating the water? When you wash in cold water, you can save money and help the planet, as well as extend the life of your clothes.

Washing in cold water may seem like a small step, but when you multiply that by the number of loads of laundry you do in a year, it adds up. Wash 4 out of 5 loads of your laundry in cold water and you could cut out 864 pounds of CO2 emissions in a year. That’s equivalent to planting .37 acres of U.S. Forest
Then imagine the impact if EVERYONE washed in cold water!

Check out the newly relaunched ColdWaterSaves.org and spread the word about this one easy switch that we can all make to help ensure #OurFutureIsClean.
