Your Challenge

Turning down your laundry temperature can save up to 60% of the energy used in every wash, showing that every degree really does make a difference. 

Why you're doing this

Lowering the temperature of your wash is the most important part of reducing the environmental impact of your laundry. Up to 60% of laundry's carbon footprint comes from heating water - that's more than packaging, production and shipping!

How you'll make a difference

Even slightly cooler water can save a lot of energy. Choose a quick wash cycle to maximise your energy saving.
