You will save over 260 gallons of water this year just by doing one load of wash each week*
*Compared to top-loading washers
90% of the energy needed to wash clothes goes towards heating the water, so chose the cold cycle to reduce energy consumption
Using too much detergent doesn’t clean more effectively – in fact it leaves residue on your clothing and causes oversudsing
Clean & Green Vision
Your campus is equipped with the most water- and energy-efficient laundry machines available. Reduce
That's the first step to being clean & green in the laundry room. The rest is up to you...
- Water temperature Choose the Cold Cycle to save energy and prevent clothing shrinkage
- Trips to the laundry room Only wash full loads to conserve water and time
- Detergent usage Use only the manufacturer-recommended dose of concentrated HE detergent to reduce the amount of dirty wastewater entering our environment
- Lint build-up Cleaning the dryer filter before each cycle maximizes air flow; improving drying and saving energy
- Residual heat Select a recently used dryer (warm to the touch) to take advantage of the heat left in the dryer
- Detergent containers Doing so helps avert tons of plastic from entering landfills
