Saving Energy – A small change, a big difference

Last year Australian’s washed their clothes over 1.9 billion times. That’s 1.9 billion opportunities to make a difference.

Last year Australian’s washed their clothes over 1.9 billion times. That’s 1.9 billion opportunities to make a difference. Washing in cold water, using a short cycle…these actions seem small, but they can make a big difference for you, your electricity bill and the planet.

The Cleaner Planet Plan aims to reduce the energy used for doing laundry in Australia by 2020. Start to improve energy efficiency at home by:

  • Doing full loads saves you money, time and effort – especially if you’ve got a whole family to look after

  • Wash in cold water – cooler temperatures will not only help to cut energy bills but will also help to protect clothes from fading too

  • Try shorter cycles

We promise to do our bit – and you can help by making an even bigger difference by doing some of these simple things.
