This week, I will start to do eco-laundry. For me, this means doing less laundry and using mostly cold water. I already use a laundry detergent that is phosphate free. In order to do less laundry, I will wear clothes more than once if they are not dirty/ smelly. Also, today I started to use the cold water option, instead of hot. I will keep the hot option for towels and sheets because they say that’s important and I believe them.
If this blog was a workout DVD- I would be doing the middle difficulty, my Mom would be doing the easy difficulty, and No Impact Man and Green as a Thistle would be Jillian Michaels. With that in mind, if you are following the easier version of the Green Challenge you’d be interested to know that my Mom is starting her first green change this week. She is using hankies instead of Kleenex at home.
