National Hanging Out Day
Every April 19 is National Hanging Out Day. Established by Project Laundry List, the day is meant to call attention to the amount of energy we use to dry our clothes. According to their estimates, between 6 and 10 percent of residential energy use is spent on drying clothes. A simple way to save money, help the environment, and spend some time outside is to line dry your laundry. Make sure to check your local ordinances before you use a clothesline; it’s may actually be banned where you live. If you can’t dry outside, you can always use a laundry rack inside.
May we all live a little greener,
