Shaving: Most of us do it. Unfortunately, billions of plastic razors and cartridges are thrown away every year. They cannot be recycled, as the metal is embedded in plastic. So, all this plastic is burned or ends up in nature. This is a disaster for the environment. Luckily, there are better options.
Zero-waste shaving with a metal safety razor
Traditional safety razors are an effective swap for plastic-free shaving. Metal safety razors were widely used before the mass production of single-use razors. Major shaving companies, who only had profit in mind, made the traditional razor forgotten. Still, a double edge razor now the best alternative to cartridge razors, for men and women alike.
One recyclable blade
Safety razors use one single blade made from stainless steel. Thus, the blades are easily recyclable. How often the blades need to be replaced depends on shave frequency and hair type, this can vary from a few weeks to months. Double edge razor blades are economical and can be bought in most supermarkets or online.
The metal safety razor
The double edge razor has a long, riffled handle made of high-quality metal. The riffles always provide a tight grip. This makes the razor ideal for shaving the face and the body.
