Gas or Electric Dryer - Which One is Greener?
As I mentioned in my somewhat controversial post on 5 un-green things I hate about America (before I start getting death threats again, I want to note that I also wrote 5 green things I love about America ), I had never owned a clothes dryer till I came to the States. That may be why I wasn't aware that clothes dryers don't just run on electric—they can be gas powered too. But which is better, from an environmental perspective? Our own Pablo has already calculated that gas dryers win over electric , but there's no harm in a second opinion. Who better to answer that question than the carbon geeks and number crunchers at Terrapass? That's why Erin Craig explains the choices she made when she had to choose between a gas and electric dryer
