Be sure to wash in cold water. 90 percent of the energy a washing machine uses goes toward heating water. Cold water also means fabrics won’t break down as much. That could reduce the amount of microplastics getting into the environment. (A single wash can release up to 700,000 tiny synthetic fibers into freshwater systems.) Not to mention, your clothes will likely look better and last longer
