Tackle bathroom waste with a simple change, switch to a reusable metal safety razor
This set of 5 metal safety razor blades is designed to be used alongside the WasteNot reusable safety razor.
Disposable razors are one of the biggest offenders when it comes to unnecessary plastic waste. The humble disposable razor has become a part of our culture and a regular feature of most bathroom cabinets, but the truth is, we’re sending billions of razors to the rubbish pile every single year, and most of them can’t be recycled. In fact, the average disposable razor will take more than 400 years to break down, and even then, it won’t biodegrade back to the earth but will simply break up into tiny plastic particles that can cause pollution and toxicity.
That’s a heavy price to pay for smooth skin.
Vintage-style safety razors offer a more sustainable option with metal handles that can be used again and again for decades. This is the type of razor your grandfather would have used, long before the disposable market became such a huge industry. With one blade as opposed to multiple, it’s also more gentle on your skin.
Can I reuse plastic free razor blades after I’m done?
Yep! With their sharp edges and super clean cut, plastic free razor blades make really useful additions to sewing kits and can also be use in arts and crafts. As they are made with metal, you can also look at options to recycle your blades once you’re done with them.
