All the dryer pods, washing machines, and other devices that we’ve come to love over the years have one thing in common: They’re all a source of environmental pollution.
While these products have been touted as environmentally friendly, they’ve often resulted in some serious environmental problems.
For instance, many of these items contain chemicals that are known to disrupt the human microbiome.
In a new study, scientists at the University of Washington investigated the environmental impacts of the more than 100 pods they tested.
In their study, the researchers found that a total of 4.6 million pods were found to have exceeded the safe limit of 4,000 micrograms per cubic meter of air.
This number is actually quite small when compared to the amount of pollution released by these devices over a 10-year period, but it represents a huge environmental impact.
They also found that the environmental impact of these pods is greater than the total amount of pollutants released by the entire United States.
While the pod sizes are small, the overall impact of the pods is significant.
According to the study, only 0.6 percent of the total pods were completely degraded, while over 10 million pods released over 1,000 times the amount were completely destroyed.
And even the pods that weren’t completely destroyed still emitted more than 300 million metric tons of CO2.
The study found that these pods release significant amounts of waste into the air, which is known to be a significant contributor to climate change.
So what can we do about these pods?
First, scientists are urging consumers to replace these pods as soon as possible.
In the meantime, the best way to reduce the environmental effects of these devices is to avoid purchasing any of these products.
Next, research suggests that you could eliminate your own waste from your laundry by washing your hands thoroughly before using the machine.
Finally, consider switching to reusable products such as detergent.
