1000 Flowers for the Planet - #511 Install an Ecolaundry
“The EcoLaundry is an environmentally friendly appliance designed to work with your residential washing machine. It infuses cold tap water with ozone, hydrogen peroxide and ions and mixes them together through a static mixer to create the ultimate oxidizer known as the hydroxyl radical.” [source: http://www.ecolaundry.net.au/what-is-it]. Once only used in the commercial sector, now there is a version for the domestic market. And why is this so good? Because you don’t use detergent to wash your clothes when you have an ecolaundry. This is great news on so many levels: your clothes will be clean and virus free; no detergents are being put into the water system; you’ll save money; your washing machine will be cleaned too; no need to use hot water saving money and energy; the life of your clothes will be extended, saving money and resources; and for people with skin problems, there should be no chance of irritation from detergents and fabric softeners because you don’t need to use them anymore. That’s a lot of benefits for both you and the planet.
