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.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
