Forget the hairdryer and let your hair air dry.
Running a hair dryer for 1 hour is equivalent to running a TV for 40 hours straight. It will also save you time, and give your curls a boost! It starts with us.
Cue your favourite 4-minute song to give yourself a time limit. A hot shower for 1 minute results in the same emissions as driving 1km in a car. Being able to reduce this time? Almost feels as good as dancing! It starts with us.
Use only the amount of product you need. Most of the time, a size of a small coin is enough. When you don’t waste product, you buy less over time. Better for you, better for the planet. It starts with us.
