Project Laundry List
Celebrating and promoting air-dried laundry as a small simple way to make a change.→
[More:]I got to see Bill McKibben
speak yesterday, and he's involved with this project. He spoke a lot about small local community-based actions to reduce energy use, and this was an example of a program that does so - he's on the board.
I like that they're into celebrating laundry lines as art. They really are beautiful, aren't they? They were such a part of the surrounding landscape when I was a child. Now, you hardly ever see one.
There's a laundry line in my backyard, but I rarely use it. I think the main reason is that it would mean I'd have to iron. As things are, I take stuff hot from the dryer and fold or hang it so wrinkles never set in. I'd have to iron a lot more if I used my laundry line. But I should try it - really, I should, especially while it's nice out and summery.
