My hair dryer finally blew up! Couldn’t believe it as I rarely use a blow dryer. In investigating blow dryers, it doesn’t seem there is much option but the Barbar Ceramic ECO 800. It is available from Amazon for $150.00.
Barbar ECO-8000 Professional ECO-Friendly 1000 Watt Blow Dryer
I Just Gotta Tell Ya
- Using a 1875-watt hairdryer for 12 minutes a day equals more than 500lb of CO2 emissions annually. Cut the time in half and you’ll cut the emissions in half, too.
- Try letting your hair air dry for 15-20 minutes before you start blow-drying. This will also help your hair as blow-drying is damaging and can cause split ends.
Then the question occurs- where do you recycle your Blow Dryer? I always try Earth911 first.and or google recycle blow dryers and plug in your city and state. In northern California it seems like most recycling centers such as Earth Care (San Jose) will take a blow dryer.
Well- I probably did a very naughty thing, threw it in the Recycle Bin anyway.
