Be a greeener kit man by washing as efficiently as possible - full loads, low temperatures and a slow spin. Use eco washing powder too if it's affordable or a laundry egg.
What difference does it make?
Washing machines use lots of energy and hot water – a full load on lower temperature makes a big difference over a year.
This activity lowers your carbon footprint by:
0.3 KG CO₂
What do you need?
- Dirty laundry
- Eco washing powder or a laundry egg (optional)
Fill up the washing machine drum with your laundry and add your detergent (eco or laundry egg if possible).
Select a low temperature (40 degrees or less), a slow spin and a short wash. Some machines have a handy "eco wash" button.
Set it off and feel good about yourself. Maybe treat yourself to a cuppa?
