WASH SMARTER

SWITCH TO GREEN CLOTHING

Last decades have seen an immense increase in environmental degradation and pollution. Most of us think to take some corrective steps towards these menacing situations but end up with nothing. But what if we tell that you can save pounds of carbon dioxide emissions, gallons of water wastage and provide protection to lots of lives by introducing some nominal arrangements in your daily life routine. Yes! It’s true………and we, your Green Guides will show how this all can happen.

ORGANIC COTTON FABRIC

Regular clothes comprise a huge amount of toxic chemicals which are harmful to both those who wear it and those who produce it. Organic cotton fabric doesn’t involve the use of chemicals, pesticides, herbicides and prevents water contamination.

It is also regarded as most skin-friendly, soothing and harmless natural fiber. This fabric is environment-friendly too ensuring pollution reduction and safety to farmers’ and their families’ lives.

WAY TO GREEN LAUNDRY

Gallons of water gets wasted every day only because of our carelessness during washing clothes. There are some little green laundry tips:

  • WASH BY HAND

If you are thinking it is a time-consuming process then think about pedal washers which are cheap as well as efficient. You can take your clothes into the shower, put some soap and start stomping.

  • USE OF FRONT LOADING WASHING MACHINES

You’ll be surprised to know that 7000 gallons of water could be saved each year if front loading washing machines are used in spite of top loading washing machines.

  • SHIFT TO ORGANIC DETERGENT

Organic detergent does not contain chlorine and additive preservatives which are dangerous to human health. It is also biodegradable and environment-friendly.

  • ADOPT LINE-DRYING

Use of solar energy for drying clothes in place of the dryer can save tons of carbon dioxide emissions.Clothes can last longer if you use line drying for your family’s laundry.

  • NO NEED FOR DRY CLEANING

Most businesses use chemicals while dry cleaning that can cause risks of several types of cancer, skin irritation and other diseases. Wet cleaning and greener dry cleaners can be used as the alternatives for conventional dry cleaning.

 

UNDERSTANDING 3R’S

The rule of 3R’s can be implemented in respect of green clothing too. Wearing a cloth more than once can adversely help in reducing the per day water usage. You can also drop your old clothes inefficient recycling houses that brings a new life to the worn out attire and make it ready for reuse.These methods are non-time consuming, economical and do not require any special efforts.

FOLLOW GREEN SOLUTIONS, MOVE SUSTAINABLE

The above-mentioned green solutions are universally acceptable and act as a viable approach to tackle the environmental challenges both efficiently and effectively. So put on your green outfit, move to green laundry and lead to “Go Green” in a much more sustainable manner.
