Saving the Planet, One Hair at a Time

We moustache you a question. Have you ever heard of facial hair being turned into household items? Yeah, us neither.

But with the silly season upon us, the team at 42BELOW Vodka are embracing the craziness!

Coming from a country of insane natural beauty, New Zealand’s 42BELOW has always been dedicated to sustainable practice but this time around the team have taken it to the next level.

Tired of the millions of moustache hairs wasted during the end of Movember shaves, the vodka brand is offering to collect gent’s discarded whiskers to create the world’s first draft-stopper filled with facial hair. Yes, you read that correctly.

The Doorstaches are shaped like moustaches and are perfect to stop the drafts under people’s doors. Less airflow means less energy usage, which in turn saves our environment and keeps our water pure. 42BELOW need that pure water to create their premium vodka, hence this weird and wonderful brainwave.

Think this might be the perfect present to make your significant other giggle this Chrissie? Or simply want a keepsake of your heroic Movember efforts? Then head on down to one of 42BELOW’s Mo Harvest Parties, held at some of Australia’s best bars, for a shave and free vodka cocktail. Your stache will be stashed inside a furry doorstopper for you to proudly take home.
