In honor of Earth Day, Tide Coldwater is hosting the "Take A Load Off" Sweepstakes to encourage us all to use cold water when doing our laundry. (I found out about this amazing Sweepstake through SheSpeaks.)
Did you know that when doing laundry, heating water can account for up to 80 percent of the energy used per wash load in the U.S.? If one household switched to washing in cold for one year, they would save enough energy to watch TV for 1,363 hours! Making the switch to washing in cold is an easy change to make with Tide Coldwater, which is specially formulated to get clothes clean in cold water. (According to statistics provided by Tide Coldwater)
You can join in the sweepstakes and take the pledge to use cold water here.
You can enter once a day until May 13th for a chance to win a Maytag Bravos XL HE Top Load Washer and Dryer and a 1 year supply of Tide Coldwater!
An opportunity to help our planet and possibly win a new washer and dryer, as well as a year supply of Tide Coldwater...It doesn't get any sweeter than that!
(I'm not being paid for the promotion of this sweepstakes or anything in conjunction with this. I'm just a person who loves our planet and wanted to share a way to help it.)
