Day 26/30 Less Waste Challenge: Line Dry!
Now that you have purchased your clothes second hand (see what I did there?) a really great way to reduce energy and resources is to line dry your clothes. Drying clothes in a dryer not only usually includes a dryer sheet (which goes straight to the landfill) but also uses a lot of energy. There are alternatives to the dryer, such as wool dryer balls (which I personally have not used), but the energy is still a factor. When you line dry your clothes the dry pretty quickly on warm, sunny days and the clothes smell so fresh! I throw a little vinegar in the fabric softener hole to help soften the clothes while they wash so my clothes are soft coming off the line. Tyler installed a retractable line in the backyard, which is fantastic as we don't get "clothes-lined" walked through the yard.
