Plastic Free July - Day 19 - Shaving

Apparently, 2 billion disposable razors are sent to landfill every year. Now, that's a lot of waste which can be easily avoided by using the simple safety razor.

My husband made this switch, and I will too as soon as my current razor comes to the end of its life ... No point switching things that still have life in them.

My husband ordered his safety razor on Amazon. He lathers up with a wooden shaving brush and soap. The steel blades are made from recyclable material. If you take care of them, they will last a long time. Blades are considered to be hazardous waste so you'll need to check where you can recycle them.

Safety razors make great gifts for the eco-conscious! Good enough for our grandparents, so good enough for us, too!
