Are You Hanging Out Today?

Beautiful day, sunny following a night time rain.

Today's the day, April 19th - National Hanging Out Day. Its about laundry today and letting your dryer go to rust. If someone said you could save 10% of your money, you would do it, right? Well, that's what hang drying your clothes instead of using the dryer does.

And if I'm not appealing to your wallet, how about the environment? The frig is the highest energy consumer in the house and in second place is the dryer. The dryer is the single most unnecessary appliance that allows us to save CO2 provided we put it to rest. With a savings of literally tons of CO2. I won't go into all the details about why, blah, blah, blah...I've done that before and you probably know by now we need to take this all very seriously as we watch snow caps around the world disappear for the first time in hundreds and thousands of year. (man, I just can't help myself)

So, hang it up, hang it out and lite the barbie and hang out.
