White Knight Debuts Natural Gas-Powered Dryer


I always feel guilty when I use my dryer — after all, won’t my clothes dry just as well hanging on a clothesline? Fortunately, a British company called White Knight has come up with a way to ease my guilt. The recently Eco Tumble Dryer runs on natural gas and has half the carbon footprint of a comparable British electricity-powered dryer.

The dryers aren’t totally electricity-free, however— a tiny amount of electricity is used to turn the drum. Still, 90 percent of the dryer is powered by natural gas.

You can buy the Eco43A and Eco83A models now for £350 and £370, respectively.
