The Get Out of Hot Water campaign educates consumers on how much energy they consume by just using hot and warm water to wash their laundry, and invites everyone to take a cold water pledge.
As mentioned in my review, their detergent is specially formulated to work best with cold water, and it truly does. To understand the impact this can have on your wallet and on the environment, they have provided this nifty calculator on their website.
According to their calculations, by using cold water instead of warm/hot, in one year I am saving:
1682 lbs. CO2
Every little helps right?!
Check it out and see how much you could be saving, and while you're there take the pledge. It's these small changes that will add up to a big difference.
Thanks Seventh Generation!
