Should we even care if they are unsightly? I for one love the look of a line full of snapping denim overalls, men's boxers and baby undershirts. Don't you? I've almost flipped my car many a time slamming over to the side of a country road to catch a shot of patterned cotton kissed by afternoon sunbeams. Apparently, I'm not the only one with this eco-habit. (Behold, 16,970 flickr images to flap over.) I have a crush on them. I'm hopelessly devoted to them. And you?
"Line drying is something so typically Austrailian to me that I associate with my childhood. There is nothing that I love more than to take time to clear my head and hang the washing out on the line on a beautiful day - it makes your clothes and linens smell so good and it is very eco-friendly. Our planet is our responsibility to take care of and line drying is one way in which we can all do our part to help the environment." - Olivia Newton-John
