Small changes to day-to-day activities, like switching to cold washing with Tide Plus Coldwater Liquid, can result in big benefits for the environment. Learn how simple updates can help you save power.
Switch to Cold
Did you know that doing the laundry in cold water for one year can conserve enough energy to drive a car up to 678 kilometres?
Tide Plus Coldwater Liquid is specially formulated to work effectively in cold water for outstanding stain removal and brilliant colour protection. Make the switch to a cold wash cycle, and start saving energy now.
Fill the Dishwasher
Did you know that, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, running the dishwasher only when full can save 45 kilograms of carbon dioxide and $40 per year?
Make sure whoever is on dish duty knows that the load shouldn't be run until it’s full. If you have a newer appliance, skip rinsing before loading—you’ll save even more water.
Want to help the environment_unplug
Did you know that you can charge your smartphone for a lifetime with the electricity you save by switching to cold washing for one year?
When your phone and other devices aren't in use, unplug them! Store chargers in a basket or drawers to reduce clutter around the house. Use a drawer organizer or a segmented basket to keep cords coiled and organized.

Turn off the Tap
Did you know that, according to the EPA, leaving the tap running while brushing your teeth can waste up to 32 litres of water per day?
A running the tap here and there can add up to significant water loss. Save H2O by stopping the faucet when you’re not wetting or rinsing your brush, rinsing your hands, or washing suds off a dish. Like cold drinking water? Keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator so you don’t have to run water from the faucet until it’s cold. It’s both refreshing and eco-friendly!

Bike to Work
Did you know that switching your commute—even if just for a few days—from individual car trips to mass transit or biking can save a lot of energy?
In fact, you save the same energy by biking to work for up to five days as you would by using cold water for laundry for a whole year. If you live in a city with a bike share program or you are close enough to your office to make the commute, try it out! If you change clothes for your commute, wash tech fabrics using Tide Plus Febreze Sport Active Fresh Liquid to keep it clean and ready to ride.
