Get Your Clothes Clean and Stay Very Green with Drumi

by John Thomas

More and more people want to live off the grid these days, but one issue these modern minimalist pioneers face is how to wash their clothes properly without having access to a traditional machine. Well, Yirego has a solution.

Their small, Star Wars droid looking foot-powered Drumi washer – which is also great for students and green energy buffs – can hold about five pounds of clothes and takes about five minutes of leg energy per wash (so you’ll get clean clothes and a decent little workout at the same time). It uses a lot less electricity (well, it actually uses none) and less detergent than a traditional washer and is a lot greener than the machines you have to use in a your corner laundromat.

It’s scheduled to be ready for delivery in July at a price of $129. If you’re interested, I’d say to make sure you pre-order one, because their clever demo video on YouTube has been viewed more than 1 million times, which means there’s probably going to be a waiting line to get one.
