Washing on the Clothes line...Carbon footprint.

Sandra from Normandale

I am old fashioned, I hang the washing on the clothes line every time.
I hate the clothes drier.
NOW I learn that I have saved so much of MY OWN Carbon Footprint on this earth.
AND if everyone did same, by NOT using the drier for one year, [ that is saving the cost of 9 months petrol use to the environment.]
USA has laws against using clotheslines as neighbours might get upset seeing knickers on the line....REALLY.....they need to go back to allowing clothes lines in every backyard to be used.
WHAT SAYS YOU?
