There are lots of reasons to hang your clothes as opposed to drying them in the dryer. Your clothes last longer, it saves energy, reduces pollution, and adds a bit of exercise to your day. Knowing that nearly 80% of the environmental impact of a T-shirt occurs post-purchase, it turns out that being a responsible consumer means more than purchasing a T-shirt made with organically grown, locally sourced cotton.
What's held me back with all of this, is that my apartment is fairly small, and I've been trying to work with a fold up rack. The fold up rack was great for a few things, but took up a lot of floor space, and was a more temporary fixture that didn't get as much use as it should have. It wasn't until I came across a Dutch Airer that I realized that this would be a much more permanent fixture in my home.
