Tackle bathroom waste with a simple change, switch to a reusable metal safety razor
Never really thought about the differences between a disposable razor and a reusable metal safety razor? Plastic razors have become one of the world’s biggest single-use plastic offenders, with nearly 2 billion of them heading to landfill in the US in 2017 alone. And that doesn’t include any of the plastic and packaging they come with.
For obvious safety reasons, disposable razors are difficult to recycle, so most of them end up heading to the landfill. In a nutshell, disposable razors are causing the same close shave for the environment (ok – that’s cheesy, we know, but it’s also true!)
How you choose to groom yourself is a matter of personal choice, but if you’re hoping to stay fuzz free whilst also living a plastic free lifestyle, take a look at some plastic free razors as an alternative to single-use items.
The Waste Not’s reusable safety razor is a vintage style razor and is made from hard wearing zinc-alloy metal. It offers a comfortable 4 inch long handle and an easy clip in design for blades, making them easy to change and maintain. This reusable, plastic free razor comes with 5 blades and is as sharp and effective as any disposable razor.
Can I reuse the plastic free razor after I’m done?
Metal razors can be reused again and again for several years, but if you’re looking for ways to avoid sending your plastic free razor to the rubbish bin after you’re done with it, consider adding it to your sewing it. It’s great for removing fabric bobbles from clothing and for scraping off paint or other annoying stains.
