Foot-Powered Miniature Washing Machine

Eco-Friendly Gadgets: Foot-Powered Washing Machine

No matter how eco-friendly we try to be, there are just certain modern necessities most of us don’t want to give up. Perhaps one of the biggest ones is the washing machine. This is especially true for those of us who may understand that clothes can be washed by hand conceptually, but who have never actually done it ourselves (and don’t particularly care to). On the other hand, there’s no denying that traditional washing machines use a lot of resources, and that sometimes you need only a few, smaller items washed rather than a full load that can justify firing up the machine.

In that case, you might want to consider the foot-powered miniature washing machine from Japantasa.

Sustainable, Simple Clean

What makes this device particularly useful for apartment dwellers is that it’s small, portable, and it can be drained right into the sink or the tub when you’re done with it. You simply put in the clothes you want to clean, the water, and your soap, then pump the foot pedal to wash the clothes inside! Whether you want to catch up on your reading or watch your favorite TV show while you handle the laundry, the process doesn’t take very long to complete. Then, if you want to really keep things eco-friendly, you can hang your clothes up to dry on a line, or put them on a whirligig.

What’s so great about this little washing machine is that the more you use it, the more of your carbon footprint it helps you reduce. You can use it while you’re at home with no problems, but you can also take it with you on the road. Whether you’re out camping, going to a convention, or just heading out on vacation, the less electricity, water, and even soap you use, the more eco-friendly your dirty clothes are going to be. And because of the aluminum used in this washing machine’s construction, it will last for a long, long time!
