“On April 1st 2010 in honor of Earth Month, CURLS™ is proud to launch The 4 Step Sustainable CURLS™ Campaign in order to help consumers reduce their carbon footprint without sacrificing style! ”
The first step is awareness…
Did You Know?
- Over 30 tons of waste are produced for every one ton of product that reaches the consumer
- 98% of those products that do reach the end consumer are thrown away within 6 months.

Click on the banner above and then post a comment in this post about how you have reduced or plan to reduce your carbon footprint where haircare is concerned. It can be anything from walking to the salon instead of driving to recycling your conditioner bottles.
This contest ends Wednesday April 7th at midnight! One entry per person, must be a subscribed reader!
For this particular activity, you prolly want plastic!
I no longer purchase plastic caps because I have substitutes readily available to me every time I go to the grocery store: a plastic bag.
Modeling a bag for ya'll!
The handles are in the front. I tie a loose knot with the handles, push all of the air out of the bag, and then tuck the knot in the front above my forehead. I sometimes wrap a towel around it.
So the next time you need to DC, just go dig around in that drawer or cabinet where you keep extra grocery bags and plop it on your head! I know plastic caps are cheap, but in today’s economy every cent counts. Also, it’s better for the environment to find an additional use for all of those plastic bags.
If you’ve got a big surplus, remember that a lot of grocery stores offer recycling for plastic bags right there i the store! Happy deep conditioning ladies!
