Eco-friendly washing machine use 47 percent less electricity and 72 percent less water.

Convenience often comes at a price, which in the case of washing machines is the amount of electricity, water, and detergent needed to power them. The Xeros washing machine could provide a more eco-friendly alternative, although you would have to get used to the idea of cleaning your clothes with thousands of nylon polymer beads. It might sound strange, but if it could save you 47 percent in electricity costs and reduce water usage by 72 percent, we think it’s worth it.

The machine looks like a standard washing machine, but it only needs a single cup of water and a splash of detergent to get the same results. Xeros already has plans for a potential £100m stock market listing, which would make the technology available to commercial consumers. Certain businesses already make use of the machines, which is further prove that the idea is popular, even if it isn’t widely know just yet.
