Save Energy: Sleep Naked

In my efforts to be creative about saving energy, I have tried to cut down on laundry and especially using the drier. I was noting that I don't have to wash any PJs for my husband because he sleeps au natural. It actually cuts down on a lot of laundry, assuming one would wear sleep wear once and throw it into the wash. That's 365 items! That's got to be a lot of laundry! So, I decided to join him in this conservation effort. After all, less laundry means, less energy used, less water used, and less work for me! Here's a pastel drawing of someone contributing to this cause. If you'd like to see more of my art work you can visit my art blog: Banba's Artful Realm.

Oh, that's funny - but brilliant! And your 'contributor to the cause' is looking quite satisfied by the concept. Love your weaving daily life into artful inspiration...

I didn't realize what a conservationist I was. I have slept au natural all my adult life and never understood why everyone didn't. Now I have some quality information from a reliable source to back up my claims that it is the way to go to save the planet.
