WWF’s Earth Hour is the world’s largest show of support for our planet and takes place at 8:30pm on Saturday 24 March. Lights around
the world, from the Taj Mahal to Buckingham Palace, will be turned off for 1 hour, as well as by hundreds of millions of people around
the world. In the UK alone, more than 8 million people and 400 landmarks, including The Shard, Edinburgh Castle and Carnaby Street, are
expected to participate.
The WWF is asking people to make a #PromiseForThePlanet; a pledge to reduce our environmental footprint. Examples include not using
plastic cutlery, washing at 30 degrees and decreasing our meat intake. These small daily changes can have a big impact on the environment.
Participate by pledging to reduce the amount you use your electrical hair dryer and heat tools. Did you know that a typical hair dryer on
high heat will use around 1500 watts per usage, which equates to £9.86 per year in energy, or £745.42 over a lifetime? Factor in using
heat tools like straighteners or curling tongs and that figure soon seems pretty substantial.
Cut your hair drying time by 50% by swapping your hair dryer for an AQUIS Hair Towel or Turban and instantly decrease your
environmental footprint. Using an AQUIS Hair Towel or Turban results in less time spent using damaging heat tools, meaning you can do
your bit for the environment while caring for your hair.
Wrapping hair in an AQUIS Hair Towel or Turban wicks away water thereby minimising ’water fatigue’ that occurs when hair is exposed to
water for too long. Hair loses 60% of its strength when wet, making it prone to breakages, tangles and frizz. AQUIS Towels and Turbans
are engineered to prevent damaging your hair, by drying it quickly. Electrical hair dryers, by contrast, are designed to help style damp hair –
not to speed dry it when it’s dripping wet.
AQUIS Hair Towels & Hair Turbans (£30) and Long Hair Towels (£35)
Available in White, Stormy Sky, Cloudy Berry, Desert Rose or Chevron.
