It’s sunny and in the mid-40s out there today, and so it’s wash day. Long-time readers of this blog know how fanatical I can be about my clothesline, but really, if you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, giving up your tumble dryer is one of the easiest ways to make a huge impact. Plus, your clothes will be all airy and clean and won’t smell of horrible detergents or those nasty dryer sheets that I’m sure are giving us all cancer.
I have an essay forthcoming in the next Dark Mountain entitled “Clothesline at The End of the World” — so maybe head over there and give them a little love. It’s a terrific publication — they make two fabulous hardcover books a year that collect some of the most interesting folks writing about environment, creativity, and how we are to live in these times of inevitable and unimaginable climate change.
