Multi-Benefits of WoolyBalls™


Help a Woman in Need~ Lower Your Carbon Footprint ~ Save Time and Money

WoolyBalls™ are handmade downtown Portland, Oregon by survivors of Sex Trafficking, Domestic Abuse and Homelessness. Through a strategic partnership with The Salvation Army and Courageous Beginnings we have found a way to

  • help and love our struggling neighbors
  • help your family reduce your carbon emissions omitted by your household dryer
  • completely eliminate toxic and harmful products from your laundry room.
It doesn't get any better than that!!

Win-Win-Win

Save Time, Money and Energy!

Wool is a natural fiber that holds 1/3 its weight in water; it also has a natural softener called "Lanolin". When 4-10 WoolyBalls are used in the dryer at the same time they save energy by absorbing water from wet laundry as well as breaking up the clothing that sticks together, therefore lessening dryer time by 10-30 minutes per load. WoolyBalls™ also adds a natural softening agent (lanolin) which provides for the elimination of toxic fabric softeners as well as eliminates annoying static.

Never buy fabric softener or dryer sheets again!!

Energy Facts and Figures:

PGE states it costs approximately .50 to dry a load of clothes. The national foundation for energy and carbon emissions states that every time we run our dryer we omit 5 kilowatts of green house gases into the atmosphere. With 6-10 Woolyballs™ in every load our carbon output is cut by 33%- 50% and that adds up over time! Furthermore every time we shorten our dry time we save on electrical costs. When we save time, money and energy drying our laundry, we have more time for what matters most.

Examples:

The amount of laundry you do every week ads up! Below are approximate energy and product savings for a family of 4.
