The scientists are P&G provided these facts to help us understand the impact of using cold water for washing laundry.

Could power the Empire State Building for 444 years.
Is equivalent to the energy produced at the Hoover Dam for 4 years.
Could power the streetlights of the “City that Never Sleeps” (New York) for 71 years.
If a household switched to cold water washing for a year, they would save enough energy to:
Watch TV for 1,363 hours.
