Project Laundry List Asks President to "Hang Out"
Concord, NH- Project Laundry List has sent a letter to the President of the United States and First Lady, calling on them to lead by example and show millions of Americans a way to save significant amounts of energy.
An existing petition, at www.right2dry.org has already gathered hundreds of signatures to ask the Obama family to reclaim the clothesline as an American artifact. The wooden clothespin was invented by American Shakers in the early years of the nation. The Shakers also developed the first mechanical washing machine.
Project Laundry List is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization whose mission is to make air-drying laundry acceptable and desirable as a simple and effective way to save energy. Project Laundry List promotes National Hanging Out Day (April 19) and works on Right to Dry efforts throughout North America because millions of families are not allowed to save the 10 to 15% of energy used by the average home to dry clothes. More information on Project Laundry List and its current campaigns is available from their website at http://www.laundrylist.org.
