Refs sometimes don't know if the ball is over the line, and they check VAR. But there is no doubt if you dry your washing "over the line" you'll save loads of energy.
What difference does it make?
Tumble dryers are in the top 3 energy guzzlers in the home. They're responsible for about 100kg of CO2 emissions every year. And cost £50-£100 to run!
This activity lowers your carbon footprint by:
0.4 KG CO₂
What do you need?
- Washing line or clothes airer
Step by step
Set up your washing line in your garden if you don't already have one. Put up your clothes airer inside if the weather's bad or you don't have space outside.
Hang your washing out and plan how you're going to spend the 67p you've just saved by not tumble drying it!
Take a photo as you hang the washing out to dry. Make sure your club shirt is on full display!
Don't worry, any clothes you're drying over a line is fine. If they're the same colour as your club's colours, all the better.
You can use indoor clothes horse or hang clothes on hangers near windows. There's also lots of tricks and quick fixes for drying clothes at home on the internet.
It was a goal. Uruguayan ref Jorge Larrionda presumably uses a tumble drier as well, since he couldn't tell that something was over the line... Watch here
