I will only hand wash my dishes for the month of February. No dishwasher at all. The average dishwasher releases 765g of CO2 per cycle. So by cutting out about a cycle a day for a month will keep 21,420g or 21.4kg of CO2 from being released.


The estimated impact each time this challenge is completed: 21 kg / 47 lbs CO2 reduced and saving up to $0!
All completions of this challenge have reduced approximately 2.14 tons CO2 and saved up to $0!
