Did you know, almost 90% of the energy used to run a load of laundry in your washing machine goes to heating the water? By simply switching your cycles to run on cold water, you can reduce nearly 1,600 lbs of CO2 emissions every year. Plus, the cold water keeps your colors more vibrant and in better condition than with warm water. If you need to use hot water, try keeping it only for small batches those tough stains. Your clothes will thank you!
