What is ‘National hanging out day’?
My friend, it’s not the day to celebrate by hanging out with friends!
Rather this day encourages people to hang clothing outdoors!
With the Invention of modern-day dryers, drying clothes in the outdoors has become a rarity.
And every year April 19 is celebrated as ‘Hanging out day’
Each year on April 19th, Project Laundry List works with hundreds of other organizations to sponsor National Hanging Out Day.
This day encourages communities to learn about the benefits, both financially and environmentally, of using a clothesline for drying laundry
According to Project Laundry Lists’ website, clothes dryers account for an astonishing six to ten per cent of residential energy consumption. source-nationaldaycalender.com
