Through art, education and advocacy, Project Laundry Listbrings a positive approach to change, with a goal of making air-drying and cold-water washing laundry acceptable and desirable as simple and effective ways to save energy.

In his engaging presentation, Lee, Executive Director of Project Laundry List, will give you thirty easy and inexpensive actions to take to slow down climate change, beginning with forgoing your dryer and hanging your clothes out to dry.

About the Honor Your Home Project

Although the speaker series is open to everyone, you must be a resident of Rye to take part in the Honor Your Home project, and commit to taking three or more actions to lessen your carbon footprint. Once committed, participants will be "honored" by having an artist paint a picture of their home. The artwork will be on exhibit at the Center from November 12-December 16. Proceeds from the sale of the artwork support REC, SSC and local artists.

Learn about several actions that you can take to lower your carbon footprint visiting the Cool Air Clean Planet web site. Take the New England Carbon Challenge!

If you have questions, or are interested in signing up for the Honor Your Home project, contact Mimi White at 964-6586 or at mimiwhite@earthlink.net.  Honor Your Home is a Rye Energy Committee program in partnership with the Seacoast Science Center and Clean Air Cool Planet.
