Vanessa Lachey wants us to go "cold" for Earth Day

Gorgeous actress/host/mom-to-be Vanessa Lachey came to the “Take a Load Off” Laundry Lounge in New York City this week to spread the word about one very simple change we can all make for Earth Day. By washing our clothes in cold water rather than warm or hot for a year, we’ll save enough energy to power a TV for 1,363  hours. If all of the households in the US were to do the same, the saved energy could power the streetlights of New York City for 71.7 years. Pretty staggering stuff. As Lachey notes the adjustment would also save each person a ton of money on utility bills. Lachey was speaking on behalf of P&G's Future Friendly campaign and Tide Coldwater, which have committed to convert all laundry loads to cold by 2020. Let’s see if we can help, shall we? Make your pledge on their Facebook page and while you’re there, enter to win prizes -- including a high-efficiency washer and dryer. Happy Earth Day!
