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.

Are you a recent home buyer? or a retiree in your own home?

The team Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Hi Neighbourly - we're looking for a first-home buyer to talk about why it was their goal to buy a house and the reasons behind it (need to be willing to be pictured with it). We're also looking for a few people 50 years or older to talk about how important owning their own home is to their retirement goals
