The Ecobubble from Samsung allows washing at 15 degrees so uses 70% less energy than a 40 degree wash cycle. It mixes air and water to create bubbles allowing the detergent to quickly penetrate clothing. This means less energy, a smaller wash cycle and less wear-and-tear to clothing. You can find out more about the Ecobubble here.
