Using clothes without ironing, a new campaign against global warming

A new environmental campaign proposes not to iron clothes anymore, around 300 thousand people have already joined on social networks.

The new viral campaign that circulates on social networks proposes not to iron clothes anymore and show them off with their wrinkles.

The proposal arises from several non-governmental organizations that promote the protection of the environment and that consider it justifiable to reduce the use of the iron.

Voices for and against have manifested in the same social networks in which the campaign has grown to avoid the use of the iron.

"When using wrinkled or better clothes that have not been ironed, it is understood that the implement that wasted energy unnecessarily was not used and therefore it is absolutely justifiable."

The way of dressing "shows care, that there is a commitment to oneself, self-esteem, that one has clean clothes, while a person with wrinkled clothes shows carelessness, that one does not have affection.

But as always, fashions generate absurdities, on the Internet, recognized brands offer garments that already look wrinkled from the factory and whose cost can exceed 150 thousand pesos.

Those who promote the campaign for the use of clothes with wrinkles, emphasize that if a home is not ironed, it is as if seven trees were planted or the impact of the gases produced by seven vehicles was reduced, thus generating oxygen for a person during seven hours. Consuming less energy is fashionable.
