How we treat our clothes after we buy them, including washing, drying, and
ironing contributes to 50-80% of the carbon footprint of the garment.
We encourage cold water washing and hang drying of all of our clothes.
Since about 90 percent of the energy consumed while running a load is used to
heat the water, by using cold water you are reducing the amount of energy
needed to conduct a load of laundry (yes, Mother Earth might hug you).
