No Shave November

Being more sustainable doesn't mean you're giving up on fun.  Today is November 1st--more commonly known as No Shave November.  A month where men can, well, be the manliest of men.  It's a fun time of the year where men can just be lazy and let it all grow out. There's another aspect behind No Shave November I'll bet you probably have never thought of before--water conservation!
Think about it. On average, you use about five gallons of water every time you shave. Times that by seven days, and you've ended up using about thirty-five gallons of water a week.

So as you men start your month long competition on who has the longest, beardiest beard of all, think about the aspect of water conservation.  Hold your friends accountable--don't let them shave!

Make sure you compare your water bills from October and November.  See if there's a difference!

Document yourselves and post them to our Facebook.  Show the world the [not so] hard work you've been doing for the last 30 days!


For the month of November, UNI's Student Nature Society is hosting No Shave November to promote water conservation and well, who doesn't want to grow a beard for a cause?

Here's how it works: We will be setting up a booth outside the greenhouse on campus the week of Oct. 29th-Nov. 2nd, stop by with $1 to register to receive a mustache bracelet AND get your clean-shaven "before" photo taken! *All photos will be saved, "after" photos will be taken at the end of the month, and we will vote on the hairiest philanthropist!

Best of luck!
