Movember is upon us! Did you know that 1 in 6 men are affected by prostate cancer?!? This is a scary fact just like the 1 in 8 figures for breast cancer. Unfortunately because men usually develop this later in life, it isn’t as well known – it is important to get checked early and be informed!!! We are raising money this month to help fund programs for more awareness and early detection.

No-Shave November is under way. In addition to raising awareness for cancer research and having an excuse to rock an awesome beard, you’re also helping the environment by participating. Here’s how:
1. You’re saving 300 gallons of water.
The average shave uses between three to 10 gallons of water, so by going shave-free, you’re saving anywhere from 90 to 300 gallons of water in one month.
2. You’re cutting back on razor waste.
Recycling of disposable razors can be difficult due to the process of separating the blades from the plastic and the potential health and safety concerns involved. Therefore, the recycling options are limited. If you’re a disposable razor user, by participating in No-Shave November, you’re helping to lower the amount of razor waste in landfills.
3. You’re saving electricity.
Even if you use a lower-waste electric razor, you’re still using electricity. Also, while electric razors last longer, the energy used in the design, manufacture and disposal of them adds to your carbon footprint. Shaving doesn’t always have to mean waste. When December rolls around, consider using a completely recyclable straight razor.
