It’s like waxing, except you can use a natural mixture of sugar, water, and lemon. Look online for a complete recipe. 2 Put the Spin Cycle on Pause Stop throwing your clothes into the hamper. That isn’t to say you should throw them on the floor — the laundry lords in your house definitely wouldn’t appreciate that. But not every item of clothing that you wear needs to get washed every time you wear it. Washing just one load of laundry in a standard top-loading washing machine consumes about 40 gallons of water, so the less laundry you do, the better.
Also, get the school to keep the room temperature regulated. Not only can overly heated and overly cooled classrooms make students uncomfortable while they’re trying to learn, but it also wastes energy. A good rule of thumb is 68 degrees for heating in winter and, if you are lucky enough to have AC in your school, 78 degrees for cooling in summer. And keep classroom doors closed so the heat or cool air doesn’t escape! Recycling is also important. If your school already has a recycling program in place, ask if recycling bins can be moved to every classroom, the cafeteria, the library, even hallways — the more bins you have, the more likely people are to use them.

That means you may have to include laundry from other members of your family to get a full load of whites, but a little teamwork and collaboration can keep your laundry eco-friendly.
