I challenge all of you to do the following to be more environmentally conscientious/ green:

#1 Wash clothes on cooler water settings.

I will participate, although I use cold water for most everything anyway, except diapers. Not sure how well that would work with them. *shrugs*

DH and I were just discussing this the other day, so I will definitely be doing it from here on out.

I already do except on the actual wash of my dipes. That is for sanitary reasons, so I am afraid I can't give that up!

I always do as well. But I wash my dipes in warm or hot water. I do run a second wash (the stupid washer doesn't have an extra rinse option) in cold.

I'm a bit late, I was out of town, but I always wash everything with cold water. We don't have any cloth diapers to worry about right now, but I'm sure I'll be able to come up with a solution if the need arises.
