Summer is arriving around the country – and the sun is out! Take advantage of the goodness and power of the summer sunshine to green some of your daily activities.

Sun-Dried Laundry

Try using a clothesline or drying rack instead of the dryer!

Air-drying your laundry has numerous advantages:

  • Energy savings from not using your dryer is great for the environment— and can lead to a considerable decrease in utility bills for many households.
  • Less wear and tear on your clothes. Cycling around through the dryer takes its toll on fabric fibers!
  • Sunlight acts as both a bleach and disinfectant. Get your whites whiter and your clothes fresher.
  • Gets you out in the sunshine, which can improve your mood and your health. But take care to protect your skin from the sun’s rays with our Safer Sun Tips.
