The gals at Green Baby Guide have a post on laundry for Thrifty Green Thursday and to express my dorkiness, I wanted to confide in you that I just love laundry. I love using natural, thrifty products (see post a few days back on homemade laundry soap), hanging clothes out on the clothesline, and smelling freshly laundered fabric. There is also something wonderful about seeing a stack of neatly folded cloth diapers that were dried in the sun sitting next to the changing table. It takes so little to please me!
For my contribution to Thrifty Green Thursday, I wanted to share a green tip that doesn't involve laundry but involves water conservation.
I keep a bucket in our shower to catch the water that is wasted while the water is heating up (sorry, but I just can't stand in a cold shower).
I then dump this water into my watering can and use it with the plants on the porch. It's also good for the water in the can to sit for a while so the chlorine evaporates out of it...much better for your plants. I'd love to eventually install a gray water system, maybe when we renovate our crumbling bathroom.
