If you’ve been looking for a excuse to keep all that scruff, then here’s you chance to do a little good while keeping it a little rough. Budweiser wants all you fine dudes to conserve 1 million gallons of water by eschewing your razors until World Environment Day on June 5. With the “Grow One, Save a Million” campaign it is anticipated that forgoing a day of shaving could save an average of five gallons water per shaver. In addition, Budweiser will donate $150,000 to River Network to protect watersheds in each of the company’s 12 U.S. brewery cities.

    Women can do their part, too. Grow a Pair. Save Water.

    Only an idiot would use 5 gallons just to shave. Two words: Electric Shaver. No water needed. Works great.

    5 Gallons per shave? OMG! what are people doing when they shave??? I use less than 5 litres each time – I fill up a bucket from the hot tap until it runs warm(then use the water to refill the toilet cistern after flushing – so you don’t waste 10 litres or whatever running the tap till it gets warm)then use warm water to shave – and use a PLUG so you don’t need to have the tap running all the time.

    Screw that. Your supposed to turn the water off when you shave, brush your teeth, etc. How much water does it really take. I shave the second I get out of the shower. I don’t need lather, shaving cream, or aftershave. Splash your face in cold water, no razor burn.
