A green beauty routine will reduce your environmental footprint. Learn eco-friendly tips about saving water and reducing waste.

Recycle the Packaging
Shampoo and conditioner bottles, toothpaste boxes and toilet paper rolls are all recyclable, among many other household plastics and paper. Visit Recyclebank to learn how your recycling efforts can earn you rewards and discounts on groceries, entertainment and more.

Save Bathroom Power
You may need to keep the lights on when you’re showering or applying makeup, but you can save power in other ways while you’re doing it. Cut down on blow-drying time by using a microfiber or other type of absorbent towel first to soak up moisture. You’ll save electricity, and your strands! Also, unplug used appliances like electric toothbrushes or your hair dryer regularly, as appliances draw power even when they’re switched off. And products like Suave® Volumizing Root Boost Spray will help give your hair thicker volume with less hair-drying time.

Consider Dry Shampoo or 2-in-1s
If your hair is dry to normal, washing it two or three times a week is probably sufficient. If it’s thin or greasy, go for once every other day. On off days, spray your roots with a non-aerosol dry shampoo to sop up excess oil. On hair washing days, Suave Professionals® 2-in-1 Plus Shampoo & Conditioner will cut down on your shower time without any sacrifice to your hair.

Buy Large Sizes and Refill Into Smaller Bottles
Stock up with large-sized versions of your favorite products to save money and plastic. If you find the bigger bottles are unwieldy, decant into the smaller containers you already have for a more manageable experience.

Conserve Water
Simply by turning off the water while shampooing or making an effort to shorten your shower time by 2 minutes, you can drastically reduce the amount of water you use. Not only will that save water, it will also reduce your electric costs for not having to heat the water. Find out more about this initiative from the Suave® Turn Off the Tap campaign.
