Hang Me Out

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire… Too much? I may be exaggerating when I say that Australian winters are fffreezing! – but surely we’re all familiar with that age old problem of trying to get the laundry done when it’s cold and dewy outside. Speaking of airing out dirty laundry, those massive spikes in energy use over the cooler months are not just us warming our toes – mainly due to our reliance on the old tumble dryer. Drying your clothes naturally instead also extends their life, ultimately making your wardrobe more sustainable. usethings have a very handy drying rack made from plantation sugar gum grown sustainably in SMARTimbers co-ops that are built to last a lifetime. They are naturally energy smart, with durable cord and sailing pulleys to suspend it from the ceiling, keeping it out of the way and making the most of the warm air that circulates through your home. To help you minimise your power bill and carbon footprint this season, we’re excited to have a usethings drying rack to give away to one lucky reader! For your chance to win, just comment below and tell us your top energy saving tip for the winter months. {Comp closes 5pm, July 19th 2012. Australian addresses only}.
