At 5pm Ecobabe does a load of laundry using eco-friendly detergent, hangs clothes on line
Why wash clothes the eco-way? Regular detergents can contain fragrances that can contain phthalates which disrupt our hormone system. Eco-friendly detergents are also less harsh on the environment (common phosphates can pollute our waterways).
Why no dryer? Drying clothes uses a lot of energy - an average of 750,000 watts/hr per year (EPA). I call the clothes line my “solar dryer!” You can also use an Energy Star clotheswasher to that is energy-efficient.
