Doing laundry is a chore most of us are faced with. Many of us have gotten away from hanging the laundry on a clothesline and have become accustomed to the use of a dryer. Project Laundry List aims to change that by encouraging people to use a clothesline. They also work on promoting changes in local ordinances against clotheslines. I have heard that there are such ordinances in place against clotheslines but can't understand the rationale behind it. I must be an aesthetics thing under the guise of safety. I have heard of some municipalities banning the old television antenna as a little assistance to the local cable company so who knows what is behind the clothesline ban.
Regardless of the reason, promoting the use of clotheslines is another return to simpler things that we have suddenly realized are environmentally friendly. I find it odd that now the environmental benefit of hanging clothes is realized. Before people hung clothes because the dryer and the electricity to power it were so expensive it didn't make sense to do it any other way. Waste became so cheap that we stopped thinking about it and now we look at old things as being revolutionary ways to save the world. Enjoy hanging the laundry and doing other things the "old school" way.
