Energy Saving Tip by Koala: Wash clothes only in full load and in cold water whenever possible
Wash clothes only in full load and in cold water whenever possible
There are two ways to reduce the amount of energy used for washing clothes—use less water and use cooler water. Unless you’re dealing with oily stains, the warm or cold water setting on your machine will generally do a good job of cleaning your clothes. Switching your temperature setting from hot to warm can cut a load’s energy use in half. Wash your clothes in cold water using cold-water detergents whenever possible.
CLIMATE CHANGE'S THREAT TO KOALAS
With so much habitat already lost and fragmented, koala populations may be more susceptible to the effects of drought, climate change and disease. Urban expansion continues to threaten koalas, particularly in coastal regions, both through vegetation loss, vehicle strike, and the threat of predation by dogs.
