I have to admit I have been a bit of an eco nut for a very long time. In fact it was well before it became "the thing to do" that I was big on recycling and more. I was raised that way. it has been a part of my entire life to care for nature around me and to be responsible with the things I have getting the most use out of them and finding new life for them when they were worn out and old. One thing we have done in our family has always been to wash in cold water unless it was absolutely necessary otherwise. So when Tide introduced Tide Coldwater I was thrilled.
Tide and Future Friendly have launched the Take A Load Off sweepstakes to encourage cold water washing. Make the promise to switch to washing in cold water on the Future Friendly Facebook page and you'll be entered to win a High Efficiency Washer and Dryer and a one-year supply of Tide Coldwater! You can enter once per day to increase your chances of winning. A new winner will be picked each week through May 13th.
Did you know that when doing laundry, heating waster can account for up to 80pecent of the energy used per wash load in the US? If one household switched to washing in cold for one year, they would save enough energy to watch TV for 1,363 hours? Making the switch to washing in cold is an easy change to make with Tide Coldwater, which is specially formulated to get clothes clean in cold water.
I learned about the Tide Coldwater sweepstakes from SheSpeaks.
