Washing machines use a tremendous amount of energy 🔌 To lower energy costs, try using cold water and washing early in the morning or late at night during non-peak hours! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you are in the market for a new machine, switch to an energy-efficient model. You could save money while also decreasing the water usage by hundreds of gallons a year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Be sure to recycle your old machines–contact your local waste management service and ask how they will dispose of the appliances.

Don’t want to splurge for a new dryer? Air-drying is another great way to reduce your environmental impact. Plus, air-drying helps your clothes last longer by reducing the wear and tear from the dryer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
No room for a laundry line? Use a drying rack (preferably bamboo or up-cycled). They’re cheap, portable, and don’t take up a ton of space.
