Almost Waterless Washing Machine

By: Abby and Summer

A British company, Xeros, has created a washing machine that uses 90% less water than a typical washer. Replacing 90% of water, the machine uses nylon beads. Using this method would save about 1.2 billion tons of water per year which would be the equivalent of 17 million swimming pools! The machine would also use less detergent and there would be no need for tumble drying which would reduce the emitting of carbon dioxide. This almost waterless washing machine could be the start to a brighter future.
