5 Tips to Green Up Your Laundry

Here’s some news that’ll brighten your day: you have the power to reduce the environmental impact of ALL your clothes, even if they’re not eco-friendly! Choosing sustainably-made garments made of fibers like organic cotton or recycled polyester is a great start. But did you know that laundering is still the largest contributor to a piece of clothing’s overall greenhouse gas footprint?
