Lazy Green Week: Laundry

Wash a full load of laundry Go ahead, be lazy; expending less effort isn't always a bad thing. This week we're giving you easy green tips to simplify and de-stress your life.

Tip #3: Let the Laundry Pile Up

If your laundry basket isn't full, leave those dirty clothes alone. To maximize energy efficiency and conserve water, wait until you have a full load before using the washing machine (on the cold setting, of course). Stretch the interval between laundry days by stocking up on socks and undies and wearing jeans and sweatshirts several times before washing them.
