I know this concept was originally eco friendly, and now it's laundry. But I keep seeing ideas like add eco-friendly traits, and eco friendly objects to the pack. I just wanted to add to the discussion that I hope - at this point- the team DOES NOT add eco-friendly things to the pack because the very concept of a laundry pack is the antithesis of ecologically friendly. You could have friendlier washer/dryers, yes, but the theme of the pactk is based on doing laundry, thus by title alone, excludes any hope of being eco-friendly.
An eco friendly leaning Sim would eat less meat, grow vegetables in a sustainable way (not a sprawling garden area), repurpose old furniture and get positive moodlets from leaving lights off, using rotten food as compost, and re-wearing clothes instead of immediately washing them. They would probably NOT want to live in a large house and may even been conflicted about fishing, since it disrupts natural systems, or having a large yard, because sprawl is bad for the environment.
The point I want to make is that, I would love a laundry pack, and I would like an eco-friendly pack equally as much, but not in any combination with each other. The message boards keep talking about this upcoming pack as if it is laundry first, with a side of eco-friendliness, and I find that such a strange combination. The marriage of laundry day, with it's high powered washer/dryers, and living with a lower footprint in the same pack implies that the two of these things go hand in hand, when really they are at odds with each other.
Sorry if this seems picky but things like [water] mitigation and the impact that our cities have on ecosystems is part of my day to day life, so I wanted to speak about this subject that keeps cropping up in tons of threads.
