Wash at lower temperatures
Washing at 30°C can help you save a lot of energy. Not to mention that it will make your clothes last longer as high temperatures are not good friends with textile fibres and wear them out. As for drying, skip the tumble dryer and favour line drying: it will save some energy and eliminate the heat and friction happening in the dryer which significantly reduces the clothes lifespan.
Buy clothes made
Petroleum based clothes such as polyester and Nylon release half a million tonnes of microfibres into our oceans and seas every year. This is equivalent to more than 50 billion plastic bottles.
The easy solution to this problem is to choose natural fabrics over synthetic ones when shopping for new clothes. Linen, cotton, wool, Lyocell and silk all derive from plants and will (if produced without harmful chemicals) biodegrade more easily than petroleum-based synthetics.
Just like for the food we eat, it’s important to check the labels of cleaning products that touch our skin. Luckily, many brands believe that washing your clothes shouldn’t cost the earth and there are many eco-friendly, non-toxic detergents on the market, such as Ecover and The Clothes Doctor, that work as well, if not better, than conventional ones.
Make the switch to wet cleaning
For clothes that require a professional dry clean process, including some PLC pieces, it’s worth considering quitting conventional dry cleaners in favour of professional eco cleaner such as Blanc Living. Blanc uses wet cleaning and liquid CO2 cleaning, which are the most eco and health-friendly methods of cleaning currently available, gentle on textile fibres yet efficient on stains.
