When shopping for a new laundry basket, head over to the gardening department of your favorite store instead. Wooden bushel baskets are typically used to haul big loads of leaves and other garden debris. But they make for attractive laundry baskets, with two wire handles for easy transport. Since they are free of polyvinyl chloride and made from renewable wood, they are a greener choice, too. They're also inexpensive, so they will save you money!
