Clotheslines are the new cool

ClotheslineAnd just like that, drying clothes on a line is hip. It will help save the planet and it’s a way to make a green statement.

Funny, just a few weeks ago, I considered it trashy. I saw my neighbors drying their kids’ clothes on a fence and I thought: “How country.” And not in a good way.

Then after last week’s Live Earth: The Concerts for a Climate in Crisis, I saw my other neighbors doing the sun-dried clothing thing and I thought: “Tres chic.”

You can find really cool clotheslines at Gaiam. You’ve got a choice between the Retractable Clothesline for 20 bucks, the Large Drying Rack for 89 bucks, and the new Breezecatcher Umbrella Drying Rack (pictured) for a 169 big ones. That’s upscale, right?

    I am really glad clotheslines are making a comeback. I remember when I was a little kid, there was nothing like the fresh smell of sheets that had been dried by the sun!
