Green Your Laundry Routine

  • Use cold water when washing clothes to reduce energy use.  Energy is needed to heat water. You can also opt for a shorter wash cycle. 
  • Only do laundry when the load is full. Not only does this save water and electricity but it also saves you money and time.  You can either wait until you have more items to wash or combine your partial load with your family or housemates. ​
  • Avoid using energy to dry your laundry by hanging a laundry line or using a drying rack. This cuts down on your electricity bill as well!
