Earth Day 2014: Pacific Shaving Asks Men to Change Shave Routine; Save Water

In the U.S., the simple routine of shaving each morning uses more than 100 billion gallons of water each year. That amount could supply every San Francisco resident with enough water to last more than three years.

By turning off the faucet and instead filling up a mug with four ounces of water to rinse the razor between shaving strokes, men can save approximately five gallons of water with each shave - or as much as 1,825 gallons every year.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 10, 2014

In the days and weeks leading up to Earth Day 2014 (April 22), Pacific Shaving Company (http://www.pacificshaving.com), the leading manufacturer of innovative, safe and natural shaving products, is asking adult men across America to help save 100 billion gallons of water each year by making one simple change to their morning shave routine: use a mug.

The average man uses up to five gallons of water with every shave. With roughly 78 million adult men in the U.S., that’s 390 million gallons each day or more than 100 billion gallons of water wasted each year – assuming they don’t shave on weekends. That amount could supply every San Francisco resident with enough water to last more than three years.

By turning off the faucet and instead filling up a mug with four ounces of water to rinse the razor between shaving strokes, men can save approximately five gallons of water with each shave - or as much as 1,825 gallons every year.

To help promote this method of water conservation, and in concert with the launch of Pacific Shaving Company’s new line of caffeinated shaving products, the company is giving away limited edition shaving mugs each day to randomly chosen customers who make a purchase at http://www.pacificshaving.com.

"With current drought conditions here in California, Pacific Shaving Company is acutely aware of the importance of conserving water, our most valuable resource,” said Stan Ades, founder of Pacific Shaving Company. “By encouraging men across the country to make this small but mighty change to their shaving routine, guys can feel good knowing they are making a positive and measurable impact on our environment every morning – before they even put on their pants!”
