5 ways to Green Your Dryer
Shrink the eco-impact of your your clothes-drying routine with these simple tips.
By not using a dryer—or using it less often—you not only lengthen the life of your clothes, you also save money and lower your carbon emissions.
Dryers that automatically shut off as soon as the laundry is dry and those that run on gas rather than electricity use less energy, reducing your carbon footprint on laundry day.
By drying full loads of laundry and using the permanent press setting, you can increase the efficiency of your dryer and decrease your carbon footprint.
By regularly cleaning the lint filter and periodically inspecting your dryer vent, you will save energy and may prevent a fire.
After replacing your dryer with an energy-efficient model, be sure to dispose of the old one properly.
