Save at the Laundrymat
Being a college student, there is one thing we all hate to spend money on. Laundry. I may not be speaking for everyone when I say that, however, I am sure that a lot of students would agree. I personally know a lot of people who would rather just save up laundry and wait to take it home (probably just so mom can do it).
When you are at school you have limited funds. Which is actually working to the planets’s advantage. When you wait to save up until you have a lot of laundry you are saving water. The bigger the load, the better. If you normally do, do your laundry here in BG just make sure you save up your loads. When you save up your loads you are saving more than water, but your own money.
When it comes to drying try to hang dry as much as you can. This way you will be conserving even more energy. Then once again, even more of your own money!
Also, do not wash things that do not need to be washed. If you can get away with wearing it again do it. There are plenty of times that you throw something on for an hour and then change. If you find yourself doing this, make sure you use judgment to see if it can be re worn.
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
