Top Tips: How to Make Your Laundry More Eco-Friendly
In these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever before that we take care of all aspects of our lives, from our well-being to our homes to the environment. While countries around the world are doing their best to address environmental issues – especially given the unavoidable rise in single-use products such as face masks – Samsung Electronics understands that product manufacturers, too, have a responsibility to help address the issue of climate change.

This commitment to providing consumers from all corners of the globe with options that put environmental sustainability at the forefront has seen a huge investment by Samsung into the research and development of products that are eco-friendly.

Consumers, too, can help do their part for the environment by making small changes when going about their daily routines at home. As well as checking out below handy info-graphic [1] on how to be as sustainable as possible while keeping your clothes clean, keep reading for some handy tips on how to make your laundry as eco-friendly as possible.



Reduce Carbon Emissions with Energy-Saving Technologies
While it is a staple to our daily lives, electricity production generates the second largest share of greenhouse gas emissions, making it important for consumers to choose eco-friendly washing machines.

Using hot water during a laundry cycle uses a substantial amount of energy – in fact, 75% of the energy required during a hot wash cycle is used just to heat up the water[2]. Therefore, to reduce the amount of energy used to do your laundry, opt for a cold wash or other optimized temperature wash settings.

With Samsung’s EcoBubble™ technology, you need not worry that a colder wash will result in a less effective clean. Even at a cold wash setting of 15°C, EcoBubble™ technology will still effectively dissolve detergent and mix it with air and water in order to create bubbles that thoroughly penetrate clothes so as to remove even the toughest stains. EcoBubble™ provides an improved fabric penetration and soil removal rate of 24%, and will take care of your clothes, too, thanks to its clothing care performance improvement rate of 45.5%[3].
