Campaign Exposes Naked Truth About New Energy Efficient Washing Machines

Campaign Exposes Naked Truth About New Energy Efficient Washing Machines

The federal government’s new energy efficiency standards for washing machines have destroyed the ability of many top-loaders to get clothes clean, according to the latest issue of Consumer Reports. Today the Competitive Enterprise Institute is launching a new campaign, calling on Americans to protest this fiasco by sending their underwear to the Undersecretary of Energy.

CEI is launching its “Send Your Underwear to the Undersecretary” campaign through a video on YouTube and a new website, www.underweartotheundersecretary.com. The honored official is U.S. Acting Undersecretary of Energy Dennis R. Spurgeon.

The culprit regulations were issued by the Clinton Administration Department of Energy in early 2001. They required a 35 percent reduction in washer energy use in two phases, with the last phase taking effect this past January. DOE claimed cleaning ability would not be affected, despite evidence to the contrary.
