Eco-Chic Tip of the Week: Reevaluate Your Razor

You’ve heard us talk about the Pacific Garbage Patch and the importance of reusing and refilling shampoo bottles, but what about the other items in your shower?

According to, “two billion disposable, plastic razors are purchased each year!” We suggest exploring hair removal methods that are much more eco-friendly, such as waxing at a salon, or even epilation.

If waxing’s not your thing, you may consider less wasteful options like a rechargeable razor or a recycled one: check out the Preserve Triple Razor, made entirely out of recycled yogurt cups! It’s under $9, and there are tons of colors to choose from. It’s time to Schick it to the Man and reevaluate our wasteful hair removal methods!
