Would You Go Nude a Few Hours a Day to Save the Planet?

Need a way to save money, save the planet, and keep cool now that Summer's officially here? Try going nude a few hours a day.

A member of the Naturist Society explains:

"Living more hours naked each day results in a dramatic drop in my laundry, which in turn reduces my water and energy use (along with my related bills). It also reduces the amount of soap I release, in my case, into the Puget Sound."

Since I have to get dressed everyday to go to work, I'm not sure I would have a major impact by going nude at home a few hours a day. I could find time to dirty fewer clothes on the weekends . . . but I have a feeling my roommates would protest.

Does hanging around the house naked appeal to you?

In our home we see no reason to bother wearing clothes. Going naked feels good.

We are naked when ever possible and practical. No issues here with the way God created us. We have towels covering most sitting surfaces. And keep a box of baby wipes in each of the bath rooms for that clean refresh feel.

I have no problem with nudity as long as everyone acts mature. If I could live naked I would, but my boss (who is also women) is so uptight she has a fit if I show a little cleavage or leg. Sometimes I go commando on bottom, just my silent protest to her Nurse Ratchet ways.

I am not a naked girl, but I like that my man is a naked guy.

I don't feel comfortable naked, I'd rather wear undies and a tshirt and maybe some pj shorts

I save the environment by re-wearing most of my clothes and not doing laundry until it's absolutely necessary. I'm not lazy, I'm environmentally friendly. Also, it snows in June here, so I'm always in layers. Layers of old, dirty clothes :)

No. I'm well-endowed, and I need the support. Also, my breasts and nether regions are naturally really sensitive, and they need to be covered. Otherwise, I would be really jumpy. :)

No! I just don't like being naked around the house I need support. Specially for the girls.

You could always sit on a designated towel if yo are that scared. Jeez I usually go naked as soon as I hit the door. I lounge around in my bedroom so if I was scared of putting my bare butt on my own sheets then something is wrong. Wiping down you couch once every three to four days is a ok. I save on air conditioning and if I need to wear some thing I have a pair or three of lounge shorts to put on.

I go naked every chance I get. I love it and I don't have any "girlie" problems.

I wouldn't go fully nude, but I would lounge around with nothing but underwear on. I HAVE to have underwear on though. I feel too awkward without it.

I agree with tlsgirl. I don't do a lot of costume changes in the day anyway so it wouldn't save laundry for me.

Will not do. I live in a hot, sticky, humid place, and walking around naked will save me absolutely nothing. I'll gain a lot of mosquito and bug bites, lots of sweat (all over my furniture? ICK.), and possibly a sunburn if I sit by a window that gets too much direct sunlight. I'd have to take MORE showers from sweating so much, and if I don't want to sweat, I'd have just as big an energy bill for all the FANS and coolant things running in the house. Plus, I live at home with family right now - and it would not go over well AT ALL. :D

I agree with clareberrys - sleeping naked is fine but I wouldn't want my bare ass (or anyone else's) on furniture around the house. It just seems unhygienic to me.

I do this all the time in summer. Especially after I shower in the evening, and I'll just walk around the house naked since I'll eventually be going to bed sans clothes as well anyway.

I sleep naked every night - but I wouldn't want to lounge naked - I'd feel gross on the couch!!

No thanks, not for me. I live with my parents though, wouldn't want to scare anyone.

this may be TMI but I love being naked. As soon as I get home all the clothes come off - save underwear. And I wrap up in a soft blanket on the couch. I don't do this for eco reasons but for comforts sake. i hate clothes!

I really don't understand how this reduces laundry. You're still wearing at least one outfit per day unless you're naked all the time, and most people I know don't do that many costume changes every day anyway.

God, how did our ancestors ever live without clothing? I don't think being naked will cause an increase in vaginal infections. I think just the opposite. Wearing panties, especially ones that are not cotton lined, keep it moist and dark down there. I think vaginas enjoy being aired out once in a while. I enjoy sleeping nude so I guess that saves me some pajama laundry.
