Lighten your wash loads

Christina Huh Nov 25, 2010

Wash only full loads of dishes and clothes or lower the water settings for smaller loads. This saves water and energy. Also, you can replace your old washing machine with a high-efficiency, Energy Star® labeled model, which uses up to 50 percent less water and electricity.
