Environment

By using a Bodyflik and missing just one wash and dry cycle a week you could:

 

• save 5,000-10,000 litres per year (see Water)
• save 237-310 kWh per year (see Electricity)
• reduce your CO2 emissions by 102-134 kg UK/EU, 318-417 lbs US (see CO2 Emissions)

Water
A washing machine cycle uses up to 100 litres of water (22 gallons) - and the average family uses the machine five times a week. That's 26,000 litres (5,720 gallons) in a year.

Miss just one wash a week by not having to wash towels and you save over 5,000 litres a year!

In fact, some washer/dryers use 200 litres per cycle -that's 10,000 litres saved a year.

(UK/ EU tumble dryers vary only slightly in their electricity usage whatever their energy rating and use approx 4.0 kWh per cycle. Washing machines vary more depending on their energy rating).

CO2 Emissions
These are calculated as kWh multiplied by the kg of CO2 produced per kWh to get the total kg of CO2 (1 kg = 2.2 lbs).
