Spin Dryers and Wonderwashes

Summary: In spring 2012, the EDGE Fund accepted a sustainability grant for $975 for Wonderwashes and Spin Dryers for Burton’s Sustainability Hall. The intent is to promote energy efficient avenues to wash clothes during the Ecolympics campaign. Students are encouraged to ask their RA to rent Wonderwashes and dryers for a 3 hour period.

Background premise: Burton’s Sustainability Hall provides activities for students to live more sustainably. The ability for residents to rent out washers and dryers helps cultivate a more sustainable lifestyle.

Cost-benefit estimation: N/A

Additional benefits: The addition of low-energy washers and dryers provides students alternative options to increase sustainability while living in an eco-friendly hall. Providing different options for students gives eco-minded students the autonomy to reduce their resource consumption.
