Abstract

Laundry is known to be a highly resource demanding and polluting practice. Many approaches to reducing impacts from laundry do not recognize the diverse reasons why laundry is carried out. Drawing on a subset of findings from a longitudinal laundry study this paper considers design opportunities to challenge laundry behaviours.
