Cheap haircuts for a good cause on Monday

Ewww girl, you’re lookin’ shaaaaggg-gy. I know, I know. Haircuts cost like a million dollars unless you want to walk into a Supercuts and play hairdresser roulette. But here’s a chance for a cheap-ass haircut that does some good too. On Monday, Davines salons are offering donation-based haircuts ($15 minimum) at participating haircuteries. Your money goes to the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, which plants trees in impoverished communities. Pretty cool. Participating salons include Greenpoint’s The Parlour, Park Slope’s Slope Suds, Bay Ridge’s Cavale Tonusi, and many more (Appointments required). You can’t beat this deal. Not even at Supercuts. (I’ve tried.) If you can’t afford $15, maybe try this, or there’s always this. Find out more about where your money is going:

The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation describes itself global movement towards sustainability by strategically donating orchards where the harvest will best serve communities for generations, at places such as public schools, city parks, low-income neighborhoods, Native American reservations, international hunger relief sites, and animal sanctuaries.
The goal is to collectively plant 18 billion fruit trees for a healthy planet, which is 3 for every person on the planet. Fruit trees heal the environment by cleaning the air, improving soil quality, preventing erosion, creating animal habitat, sustaining valuable water sources, and providing healthy nutrition.
