Infographic: Green Your Beauty Routine
Have you ever taken the time to think about how much energy we use before we even step out of the door to begin our day? From turning on the lights to do our makeup to blending our favorite smoothie, we not only need electricity to look our best, but to feel our best too.
There are several things you can do to continue looking your best while using less electricity. Blow dryers are the top energy-consuming beauty appliance and use around 1,875 watts on high heat, which is more than powering a refrigerator for an hour.
You can air dry or use the cool setting to improve your energy costs. You can also ditch the blow dryer, buy a hair straightener with an automatic shut-off or do your morning routine near a window instead of in a bathroom filled with artificial light.
By taking these small steps, you too can help create a clean energy future.
