A surprising sneak peek at the clothesline revolution

Can we save the world by hanging our clothes on a line instead of using a dryer? Maybe not, but there is an interesting movement in the United States, Project Laundry List, to encourage line drying clothes. Maybe this is not such a big deal in Australia (we all hang our clothes on the line, don't we?). However, this article from Grist has some pertinent information about how the movement arose, some of the roadblocks in its path, and how it is trying to change people's behaviour and raise their consciousness of green issues.
