I’m not going to reveal who sent me the link to a post on styleist.com, “Going ‘Green’ with Style.” Frankly, I had no idea Tony my friend read the fashion blogs. But this particular post is right on, with good tips on reducing, reusing, recycling, like this:

Don’t over-wash clothes. The heat, water, soap, along with all the twisting and scrunching, stresses fabric. Wash when there’s visible dirt; air clothes out and spot-clean to keep them fresh between washings. Go for cooler rather than hot water whenever possible. The new cold-water detergents work well, are gentler on fabrics, save energy and greenhouse gases — and save on your bills.
