August's challenge is No Dryer Month. We will be committing not to use our dryer at all for an entire month. Will you join us?
Did you know that...
- Dryers are among the top 3 energy consumers in most homes, along with the fridge and the water heater?
- Line-dried clothing puts less stress on clothing, causing it to last longer?
- Line-dried bedsheets smell heavenly?
- The suns rays actually kill germs and whiten whites?
If you're planning to take the plunge with us, I've made a banner (it's 300 x 300px) for you to display on your own blog. Just cut and paste the code below.
