I’ve been seeing it everywhere in New York City; guys with beards now that the cold weather is here. And I’m loving it! It’s sexy, and just a little bit fuzzy too. When I put together a meeting of green bloggers a few weeks back, ALL of the guys had beards, and none of them are hippies, though they are all creative, dynamic men.
Why am I talking about beard trends on an eco-blog? Because not shaving every day is definitely low-impact:
-Less hot water used in the shower or at the sink
-Less or no need for razors or shaving cream (which often comes in those huge unrecyclable containers)
-Hair on your face keeps you just a bit warmer outside- and in. Turning the thermostat down just 1 degree can save you 5% on your heating bill!
Boys with Beards! My friends (L-to-R) Dan Shapely and Brian Howard, editors at The Daily Green, and Muhammed Saleem, top green Digger, and
Me with my friend Ari, who hasn’t worn a beard in years, and is now a convert!
Leo was spotted with a beard recently while being honored at the Marrakesh Film Festival!
But ladies, please DON’T try this at home…. even if you’re as cute as Avril Lavigne!
