GENERAL TIPS

Read our general tips on how to be more eco-conscious when washing your clothes:

 

Caring for the colour of your clothes

When washing by hand, make sure the detergent is properly dissolved before inserting the garment. Keep colours separate for the first few washers, as the dye may get into the water.

Remember to empty pockets before machine washing.

Use bleach with cold water only and for a maximum of one hour.

When drying do not expose garments to direct sunlight.

 

Wash Less:

Wash your favorite pieces less and wash with adequate load to reduce consumption of water and detergent.

To reduce your carbon footprint and prolong garment life, refresh by airing until washing is required.

 

Keep it Cool:

A cold machine wash will significantly cut down energy consumption and help reduce climate impact. Plus, your garment will look better and last longer.

 

Avoid Dryers:

Natural drying is energy free, which reduces climate impact and saves energy.

Lay flat to dry or hang to dry, instead of using a clothes dryer.

 

Green Dry Clean:

Traditional dry cleaners typically use hazardous chemicals that have a negative impact on our land, waterways, air and general environment. Dry cleaning when recommended is crucial to maintain the quality of your garment and can extend its lifespan. However, consider an eco-friendly or Green Earth dry cleaner.

 

Green Earth dry cleaners use silicone, a non-toxic, non-hazardous and gentle solution. Offered through a variety of service providers, look up your nearest Green Earth cleaner.
