Once per day

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
  • Pegs

What should we do if we do not have a team kit?

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.

Can this be done indoors?


What if i don't have enough space to hang washing out at home?

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.

Talking about "over the line" ... what's your view of Lampard's "goal" against Germany in the 2010 World Cup match...

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
