Dryer Balls & The Environment:
First, If you can avoid using the dryer altogether, it is best. Drying racks are always a better option - outside in the summer, and inside in the winter.
However, if you do use a dryer, consider using wool dryer balls to shorten drying time! Each ball weighs about two ounces. Use three at a time to absorb moisture, rotate clothes and provide better air circulation.
