How To: Sustainability

Groom Responsibly

April 17, 2020

As man’s best friend, Bulldog takes great pride in doing the right thing for the planet man lives on, whether it’s Earth day or any other day of the year. We live by the motto that making great grooming and skincare products doesn’t have to cost the earth, and that’s why we are always looking for ways to reduce our environmental impact. 

As a whole, the skincare industry is a major contributor to the amount of plastic packaging used each year, with most packaging made from fossil fuels. These non-renewable sources release carbon dioxide during the process of conversion to plastic and contribute to global warming.

We knew that we could do better.  Working with our manufacturers, Bulldog became the first men’s skincare brand in the world to develop a new tube package using sugarcane as the main component. The difference is astonishing. For every 100 tons of sugarcane plastic produced, 309 tons of Carbon Dioxide are taken out of the environment resulting in a significant impact on the environment. And the sweetest part is that sustainable sugarcane doesn’t need much more than natural rainfall to grow. 

Another earth-conscious innovation we are extremely proud of is our Original Bamboo Razor. What sets this razor apart is its natural bamboo handle and un-chromed metal components, meaning it’s made with less plastic than most other razor brands. Its packaging is also made from fully recycled stock with environmentally friendly inks. Since its launch in 2018, our razor has been featured in several prominent media outlets and just last year, our Original Bamboo Razor won the Men’s Health Grooming Award for “Best Green Razor.”

Another part of this planet that is near and dear to us is animals. It’s no coincidence that we have an English bulldog as our mascot and logo. We care deeply about our furry friends, which is why all our products are cruelty free and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.  If you look on the back of our tubes, you’ll see the Leaping Bunny logo, which is the gold-standard in cruelty-free certification for personal care and household products companies like ours.

Bulldog pushes boundaries to make it easy for men to look their best and feel good about their purchase. Because the same way you can make a big difference in your skin by making small changes in your grooming routine, the same can be said for our planet. Every little action adds up, and the only way we’re gonna lessen our environmental pawprint is by all working together.

So whether it’s Earth Month or any month, always remember to Groom Responsibly. 

Happy Earth Month!
-Your Friends at Bulldog
