Nick Offerman encourages men to grow beards for the environment

Nick Offerman is encouraging men to put down their razors and help save the planet.

The “Parks and Recreation” actor is teaming up with Budweiser for its “Grow One. Save a Million” campaign, which ask guys to stop shaving in the days leading up to Sunday’s World Environment Day in order to conserve water. As a lover of both beards and the Earth, I can really get behind this.

“The only thing manlier than growing a big, burly beard is ripping a big, burly beard off of a charging grizzly with your bare hands,” Offerman said in a press release. “That, and saving the planet.”

While I applaud Offerman’s efforts to save water from being wasted and facial hair from being shaved, I fear this campaign will offend those gentleman who, unlike the actor, are physically unable to grow a robust beard.
