Sustainable Laundry Habits

Laundry basket and washing machine at home.

For the typical household, back to school—and back to extracurricular activities—means more laundry than ever. 

Make your laundry habits more sustainable by running full loads on your washer’s coldest setting, as modern washers are designed to clean clothes equally well in cold water. Skip the dryer by hanging items to dry when you can, and consider transitioning permanently to energy-efficient reusable dryer balls. 

These small changes add up to big value when it comes to energy conservation.
