A greener laundry room!

Washing and drying clothes represents 40% of the total energy of all your appliances. By making smarter choices, you can easily reduce your environmental footprint without sacrificing the cleanliness of your clothes. Adopting simple little habits and choosing greener appliances can noticably reduce this percentage!


TIPS #1
CHOOSING THE RIGHT WASHER/DRYER

FAVOUR FRONT-LOADING MACHINES

They use less water
Consume 40% less energy
And require less detergent



AN ENERGY STAR WASHER
= 25% less electricity and 45% less water

AN ENERGY STAR DRYER
= avoid overdrying thanks to humidity sensors


CHOOSE A WASHER ADAPTED TO YOUR NEEDS
Choose a washing machine with a capacity suited to your needs. A big family with a small washer multiplies the loads unnecessarily.

WASH SMART
Select the Auto cycle or Smart function. The precise water level is detected automatically, resulting in both water and energy savings.

TIPS #2
LOAD-UP your laundry days


WASHING

WASH BIG LOADS

Small loads use twice as much energy as large ones.

AVOID WASHING TWICE

Soak heavily soiled clothing rather than washing a second time.

THE EXACT AMOUNT OF DETERGENT

Use the correct amount of detergent (2 to 4 tbsp).
Too much detergent = more rinsing = more energy consumption = more $$$


DON'T WASTE WATER

Select the water level according to the amount of laundry you’re washing. Or, choose the small-load cycle so as not to waste water.


CHOOSE COLD WATER

Washing with cold water can deliver 80% to 90% in energy savings versus hot water, as hot water requires energy to heat it.

MAKE IT A SHORT WASH

Choose short, delicate or hand wash cycles. They consume less energy and are more gentle on fabrics.



DRYING

SEPARATE HEAVY FABRICS FROM LIGHT

As some types of fabric dry faster than others (60 vs 40 min). Combining them unnecessarily prolongs drying time.

DON'T FILL IT TO FULL

Don’t fill the dryer to full capacity. Air flow will be reduced and your clothes will take longer to dry.

CLEAN THE FILTER

Clean the lint filter after each cycle and rinse it under running water once in a while. This simple habit will reduce the length of drying time.


PLAN YOUR LAUNDRY DAYS

Try to dry your loads one after the other to conserve heat. Remember: your clothes dryer is the most energy-hungry appliance in your home!


SAY "NO" TO WATER-SOAKED CLOTHES

Avoid putting water-soaked items directly in the dryer. Instead, return them to the washing machine for a spin cycle or two. You’ll save both time and energy.

60 MINUTES TOP

Choose a 60 minutes drying time at medium temperature. Drying cycles that are overly long consume more electricity.



Pour sa première édition, Les jours verts Corbeil abordent le gaspillage alimentaire.

Véritable fléau, près du tiers de la nourriture produite dans le monde est perdue et 63 % de celle jetée au pays aurait pu être consommée. En optant pour des appareils plus écoresponsables, vous pouvez contribuer à réduire ce gaspillage et votre empreinte. Les nouvelles technologies vous offrent plusieurs options.


Les options à considérer pour un frigo plus écolo


Pensez à la technologie à lumières LED bleues


Elles reproduisent la lumière du soleil dans les
bacs à fruits et légumes et permettent de
conserver leurs précieuses vitamines.




Opter pour un réfrigérateur intelligent

 

Les frigos intelligents proposent de multiples options qui facilitent la gestion des repas et réduit le gaspillage.

Grâce à la gestion des dates de péremption et à la visualisation du contenu à distance, le Family Hub de Samsung en est un bon exemple.

Le réfrigérateur avec technologie InstaView de LG est une alternative tout aussi intéressante. Il est équipé d’un écran tactile qui devient transparent, ce qui vous permet de regarder le contenu de votre frigo sans avoir à ouvrir la porte.

 


Repérer les appareils avec un système à double évaporateur

 

Comme la technologie TwinChill de GE qui contrôle
l’humidité dans les bacs à fruits et légumes
ce qui optimise leur conservation.



Choisir un frigo avec bacs à humidité contrôlé

 
En contrôlant l’humidité de vos bacs à fruits et légumes, l’option Flex Zone de Samsung les conserve plus frais, plus longtemps.



Favoriser les congélateurs de bonne grandeur

 

En préparant vos repas à l’avance ou en congelant certains aliments, vous réduisez le gaspillage et les pertes. Assurez-vous que la capacité de votre congélateur répond bien à vos besoins.
