This washer runs off 100% renewable energy, perfect for the sustainable home.
Sustainable living is becoming more popular with people wishing to reduce their carbon footprint, and reduce their household bills at the same time.
As the world seems to become more materialistic, there is a movement of people wishing to go the other way – to return to a simpler and more wholesome way of living.
Most people have houses filled with time and energy saving devices, which seemed great at the time of invention but has sadly created a generation of lazy and selfish people.
Why bother doing something for yourself, when you can get a machine to do it for you? seems to be the thought process of many people.
But returning to a more simplistic and pared down way of living can really do wonders for your soul, and your bank balance.
This new pedal-powered washer is a great example of one of the inexpensive devices you can employ to help you on your way to a self-sufficient home.
Many people take advantage of their laundry products, and the cost of running a washing machine all the time can quickly add up.
This Eco-friendly washer created by GiraDora costs just $40 and uses human power in the form of pedals to wash your clothes, with no electricity needed.
Easy to use and lightweight means this product can be easily moved around the home, even taken with you on trips.
The washer also provides a handy way of exercise in the home, in a time where many people are overweight but complain of having no time or means to exercise.
Before the invention of the washing machine, laundry was a tough and vigorous process.
Harnessing the power of your body to complete household tasks is a great way to feel a completeness in your life that electronic gadgets have taken away from us in recent years.
