Try air drying your clothes.
Clothes dryers use up lots of energy. They are the second biggest household energy user next to the refrigerator. You can save energy if you occasionally skip the dryer and hang your clothes someplace where they can air dry.
Project Laundry List is a non-profit organization that is working "to make air drying and cold-water washing acceptable and desirable." They believe that all citizens everywhere should have the legal right to hang out their laundry. Check out ways you can help.
