Newsweek has uncovered new evidence that suggests our fall hair colors are a product of our environmental footprint.
The report, titled “Fall Hair Colors: The Story Behind Their Origins,” reveals that while we are used to having a certain amount of fall hair color, our hair is also a natural resource and the colors we choose to wear are an important part of our daily life.
“It’s very easy to imagine what fall hair looks like in the United States,” said Rachel McElroy, a graduate student in anthropology at Harvard.
“It’s a natural thing that we have in our body that we use every day.”
“So if we can make it more of a natural product, then it could be more sustainable and it could also have a more positive impact,” McElry added.
Researchers from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) used data from the US Environmental Protection Agency to compare the amount of water needed to produce the average American fall hair to other countries, as well as to find out how many people are using pesticides and other chemicals in their fall hair.
“I’m really intrigued by the fact that this has never been looked at before and how much water has been used to produce fall hair,” McEllroy said.
“I think it’s a really interesting thing that it’s been neglected in terms of what’s been happening with fall hair.”
The report revealed that while the average amount of rainfall fell on the United State each year is only 1.4 inches, it is expected to increase to 2.6 inches by 2050, according to the NRDC.
While the average number of Americans using pesticides is estimated at 10 million per year, it has been estimated that this amount of pollution is being emitted in areas such as the state of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Utah.
The study found that the United Kingdom had the highest amount of pesticides, followed by Canada, France, and Italy.
The United States has also been linked to a number of environmental problems.
In 2012, the country experienced an increase in cases of skin cancer, which researchers believe may have been caused by the use of pesticides and pesticides-related chemicals.
While fall hair is not the only natural resource on the planet, it does provide a wealth of information to help us better understand how we are living our lives and how we can be more environmentally responsible.
“The beauty of fall is that it allows us to get into our own little world, to create our own universe, to see our own reflection, to be the ones who are creating these worlds,” McEnery said.
“That is really a really powerful thing because that allows us really to be ourselves and create our world.”
