Sustainable laundry – Help the planet while saving your clothes
When it comes to making eco-friendly lifestyle choices for your home, the laundry room is often overlooked. Fortunately, reducing the impact of washing and drying clothes not only contributes to a greener home, it can also save money and make clothes last longer.
While appliances play a key role in sustainability, other small changes to your laundry routine can go a long way in helping your environmental footprint and prolonging the life of your favourite clothing. Try to wash in cold water, dry clothes on a lower heat setting and use environmentally friendly laundry detergent or make your own. And be sure to follow the directions on your clothing labels – a recent survey found that 66 per cent of Canadians do so to preserve their clothes.
If you're looking to upgrade your washer and dryer with clothes preservation and energy water savings in mind, look for a laundry pair that has intuitive and convenient features that take the guesswork out of laundry. The new LG AI Front Load laundry pair is built with all that and more! It has been built with AI technology that takes the guesswork out of laundry with user-friendly features that make it easier to do this often-tedious chore.
The laundry pair uses AI to detect, sense and optimize wash settings for top fabric protection. This innovative feature senses the load’s weight to automatically select the proper wash cycle, while adding the exact amount of liquid detergent and fabric softener that is needed at optimal times during the wash cycle for improved results and clothes that last longer.
When upgrading your laundry machine, always look for the Energy Star seal, which indicates the product is certified to help save energy, and a machine built with innovative technology, which will help reduce your environmental footprint, right from home.
