If every U.S. household used cold water for laundry, the energy savings would be 70 to 90 billion kilowatt hours per year.
These savings would translate into 34 million tons of carbon dioxide per year not released into the environment, which is nearly eight percent of the Kyoto target for the U.S.
Changing Consumer Behavior….
In the UK, 23% now wash in 30°C, up from 2%. Over 58,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions prevented.
In the Netherlands, 52% now wash in 30 o C, up from 7%.
