Beat the Heat, Wash in Cold, and Win an Eco-Friendly Home Office

NoBloPoMo - Day 5

Ready for the fifth C3 action? Pledge today to "Beat the Heat, Wash in Cold" and pass the word along. Do so and you could win a $1500 eco-friendly home office or one of 27 other great prizes.

Take the pledge at

(yes, even if you took other C3 pledges, you need to take this pledge to be eligible for November's prizes)

Did you know that simply by pushing the "cold/cold" button for four out of every five loads of laundry you can cut 72 pounds of CO2 emissions this month alone? Keep it up for a year and you’ll save more than $60 in energy costs too!

We have been washing in the cold water cycle for at least a year now. The clothes still come out fine, so I do everything but towels & linens in cold now. Really has saved on the energy bills. I also hang dry a lot of clothes, so I try to full loads of hang dry to avoid using the dryer.

Hope you take the pledge :)

On a parting note, a quote:

Of course, like every other man of intelligence and education I do believe in organic evolution. It surprises me that at this late date such questions should be raised.

- Woodrow Wilson, 1922
