Tonight I went to my library's Clean & Green series that happens once a month. Tonight's guest speaker was Alexander Lee from Project Laundry List. You can also find them on facebook. They are a group who are promoting using clotheslines instead of dryers. Not only do you save on gas / electricity, but your clothes will last longer.
Clotheslines are banned by tens of thousands of homeowners' associations nation-wide.
Through a public airing of communities and landlords that prohibit the clothesline, we aim to encourage the use of the clothesline."
"It is way past time to push people to wash with cold water. Washing with cold water saves almost as much energy as using a clothesline. Join the Cold War!"
