Hisense: Minimalist in design, the latest Hisense washing machines (Series 5 and Series 7) not only look sharp but they’ve got eco-credentials too. Both product lines offer strong sustainability credentials when it comes to energy and water usage and we love the charcoal black finish.

Hills Aluminium A-Frame Airer: It’s not often that we get excited about a clothes airer but this rose pink design caught our eye. Not only is air drying gentler on your clothing but it reduces energy bills and your environmental footprint too. To maximise drying efficiency, make sure to position your airer in a warm, breezy spot which could be under an open window, over an air vent or by an open door. $99.

Electrolux 9kg UltimateCare 900 heat pump dryer with 3D Sense: This dryer features technology that measures the humidity and dampness of the load and adjusts the drying time according to the fabrics being washed. Even silk and wool can be dried and special sensors also work to avoid over drying which can be harmful to fabrics. In addition, the fast drum movement on the wool cycle ensures wools are kept flat to reduce shrinkage. $2249.
