We know, doing laundry can be a snooze-fest. But, you know what? Your laundry routine has a huge impact on the environment, and not to mention, your health, closet, and wallet.
For one, the average U.S. household does 400 loads of laundry every year, consuming nearly 13,500 gallons of water.1 Laundry also accounts for a whopping ¼ of carbon emissions from clothing.2
Thankfully though, we can all make small, eco-friendly changes to our laundry habits to make a positive difference. Check out our guest post on the DoneGood blog, featuring 3 green laundry tips that'll help you take steps toward a cleaner environment and a healthier you.
P.S. -- DoneGood's Chrome browser plug-in makes it SO easy to discover sustainable shopping alternatives, by notifying you of DoneGood approved brands as you shop online. We love how it informs and empowers us to shop more consciously, and we think you'll love it too.
