Green Technology

 

Would you believe that your laundry room is a big waster of water.  On average, approximately 70 percent of the water used in a home is indoors.  The average family of 4 in the United States can use 400 gallons of water every day.  The EPA has several tips to help you conserve water, including changing your washing machine and toilet to something energy efficient.  For example, traditional model washing machines use between 27 and 54 gallons of water per load.  However, new, energy- and water-conserving models use less than 27 gallons per load.  They come in both front and top loading styles.  We recommend joining one of these efficient models with a laundry cleaning system that eliminates detergents, and you will not just be saving water but making sure that the water you do use washing clothes is free from irritating soaps and bleach.  Pairing these two green technologies for water and energy efficiency is a great way to be kind to the environment and save on your water and energy bills.  Berry Environmental Services

The answer should be None.  As detergents cause pollution.  According to the EPA, chemicals used in detergent could enter the water supply through runoff and waste water treatment for sewage does not make the water reusable.  These toxins may have a harmful effect on wildlife, as well as affecting the public water supply.

Why do you want to keep paying for detergent?  Detergents are expensive.  According to EnergyStar.gov, the average American household spends as much as thirty dollars each month on detergent, and even more on fabric softeners, bleaches, and other cleaning agents.

Would you believe that using detergents is also wearing out your clothes?  The chemicals in detergents can cause fading, and even pilling, because they are abrasive in nature.

Do you or a member of your family have or has had a rash to the detergent you’ve tried in the past?  Detergent can cause allergies because of the chemicals used.  A test called “Human Repeat Insult Patch Test” is used to evaluate a person’s sensitivity to detergents because of the wide variety of chemicals used in detergents, brighteners, bleaches, softeners, and fragrances.  Reactions can be reduced by using hypoallergenic detergents, and by keeping the washing machine in good repair, to reduce leftover residue.

For years, people have used washing machines to do their laundry, and their biggest questions have been “what is the best detergent,” and “which machine is best.”  Detergent companies advertise heavily, and continually strive for higher efficiency products, with broader appeal.  However, the surprising truth is that the best detergent may be no detergent at all.

Fortunately, detergents can be avoided altogether.  Having been used for several years in hospitals,  energy efficient washing machine models that eliminate detergents are now available for household use.  By using these, customers do not just save water but also keep irritating soaps and bleach out of their washing water.  The two-pronged approach of water and energy efficiency is a great way to be kind to the environment and save on your water and energy bills.

Technology designed to promote water conservation is aimed at all types of consumers.  Some of the hottest trends right now involve finding ways to reduce the amount of water used in the average household.  Some methods are very basic, like replacing toilets with low-flush models that use significantly less water, or replacing old faucets with new ones that use aeration technology that breaks water into smaller droplets allowing less water to be used overall.

“Going green” has become more than just a catch phrase, and is becoming a way of life for many people and businesses.  As energy and water costs rise, people are looking for ways to cut back on the use of these things, and water conservation is rising to the forefront in green technology trends.  These trends are aimed at helping individuals and corporations alike.

There are many other trends aimed at businesses as well such as installing automatic faucets in all public restrooms to help cut down on wasted water. Steam technology for cleaning and sanitation purposes has found practical application in settings such as hospitals, and helps facilities use much less water than they would traditionally use.

High Efficiency washing machines are also highly desirable items right now because their advanced technology saves consumers money by reducing water costs and energy costs, while still providing consumers with clean clothing. New appliances are also available to help you to do laundry without detergents or hot water, increasing savings with each wash while keeping the water used to wash clothes chemical free and potentially suitable for other uses like watering the lawn. This approach is similar to the popular practice of harvesting rainwater on rooftops and using that water for flushing a toilet, cutting down overall water usage.

Conserving and protecting water resources are just one way you can join in to create a healthier, sustainable future for generations to come. Take time to look around your home to see what you can do to further reduce water and energy use. You may find you can help save a lot more than money.
