How P&G Products are Made Better and Made to Save

P&G makes it easy to save energy, water and plastic.

Did you know 90% of Americans want to live sustainably, but only 11% consistently do?* Why? It’s hard! 82% say it’s too difficult, 63% say it means sacrificing product performance, and 89% think it’s too expensive. But what if it didn’t have to be hard? Let’s start where it matters most: energy and water.

*US consumers surveyed reported they “always” practice 10 out of 17 sustainable behaviors.

If not, you’re not alone! Only 18% know what drives the biggest footprint.

P&G scientists have been designing better products that help save water, energy and plastic while delivering exceptional performance. Made better. Made to save.

In the next chapter of the #ItsOurHome campaign, P&G has partnered with digital creators to show just how easy it can be to save water, energy and plastic with products that are made better for you. Check out their sustainable hacks!
