As an ardent anti-ironer, I couldn't agree more with the eco-sentiments of this campaign. Not only that, but being a single male home-owner, I am genetically disposed to being rubbish at ironing. The result of this is that on the rare occasions when I do iron, the clothes have just as many wrinkles, only now they are all very clearly defined and far more obtrusive than natural organic wrinkles.
The usual excuse I use (sorry, reason that I use) is that the shirt is fine, it's the skin underneath that's all wrinkly.
Any other good reasonexcuses (new word) should be brought forward so that we have a bank of explanations for when the unenlightened ironing slaves try to put us down for being avant-garde.
Wear organic clothing! Let your shirt have more wrinkles than your granny's smiling face! Lack of power to the iron!

Other wasteful and superfluous activities of Western culture are silverware and lawn care products. Shouldn't we have "starving people care," or even "health care" for all humans before devoting any money at all to stupid LAWN care? And imagine all the money saved and resources devoted to the good of all humanity if no one ever made silverware, forks, knives, spoons, plastic utensils, ever again. Imagine what the factories could be used for, what the extra steel and plastic could be made into instead of dumb silverware. You eat burgers and fries with your hands. You eat chicken with your hands. So why do you spend money on these unnecessary little tools to keep your hands clean, when you still have to wash your hands before and after eating anyhow? Makes no darn sense.

The anti-ironing campaign fits in with the campaign I had started a while back: Relinquish Your Spoons And Bourgeois Lawnmowers (or R.Y.S.A.B.L.)

Together we can make the world a better place by letting our lawns grow, eating with our fingers, and leaving clothes wrinkled!

Plus I never really got the hang of how to get shirt-cuffs really crisp...

*would relinquish both her spoon and lawnmower, but her parents would be very pset if all spoons went missing, and she doesn't own a lawnmower... smiley - winkeye*

Ironing?
Never owned an Iron,
Never used an iron,
I have no clothes that have ever been ironed.
My father doesn't iron clothes.
My father doesn't own an iron.
I am plesed to have (just) reached the age of 25 without ever owning an iorn, using an iron or wearing an ironed piece of clothing..
Altough, our cat sits on any piles of just washed clothes, and that helps smoothen htem out to an extent...

You know, a trick I was told once is if you fold your washing while they are still wet, you don't have to iron them. smiley - smiley
