Keep it Cool

I don't personally know of anyone who uses the hot water option on their washing machine. But if you currently use it, consider switching to a cold wash...

It would take 5 loads of cold wash to use the same amount of energy as a hot one, because the energy needed to move the clothes around only a fraction of what is needed to heat a machine full of water.

Oh, and by the way, if you're in the market for a new washing machine, why not go with a front-loader, they use even less energy.
