Heading into the future, there will be less and less of most precious resources, and they’ll cost more and more to use. A simple process, doing laundry for instance, could become much more costly because of increases in the price of fresh water and electricity, or even the cost to grow the cotton that makes clothes.

Here at Anon Laundry Co, we want to keep on getting clothes clean, but we need to make sure we start doing so with a minimal environmental impact. Moving into the future, how can we start washing our clothes in a more sustainable way?

Deliverables

Propose an environmentally friendly/sustainable laundry product or technique:

1. What is your environmentally sustainable laundry product or technique of the future?

2. How is this product or technique more environmentally sustainable than current practices?

3. (Optional) Sketches, drawings, mock-ups, videos, CAD renderings or any other visuals that better illustrate your sustainable laundry product

Things to consider:

- We want to hear your thoughts on interesting and exciting new directions that laundry might head in. Submissions that suggest predictable/already established practices will not be highly regarded.

- Consider the human experience with laundry in the future, and how Anon Laundry co can fit into the new practices that will be in place.
