Mac-Gray, the laundry company that services Vanderbilt Hall, replaced all ten of the old washing machines in Vanderbilt with new, energy efficient front-loaders.

The old washing machines used 32 gallons of water per wash, while the new front-loaders use only 13 gallons. In addition to the water savings, the new washing machines use less energy since there is less water that needs to be heated. Remember to wash clothes in cold water, rather than hot water, whenever possible in order to both save energy and extend the life of your clothes!
