Have you ever wondered where all of your old plastic razors go when you’ve finished with them?
Some would say that they are as bad as plastic straws for their impact on the environment!
According to the EPA statistics, it is estimated that 2 billion razors are thrown away each year in the U.S. alone, multiply that by the rest of the world and you’ve got some huge planet impact issues going on.
So, what’s the alternative? Simple – the safety razor.
Safety razors have been around since the 1880’s but went out of favour with the introduction of the disposable razors, However, with the plastic free movement gaining momentum, we are seeing the safety razor making a comeback. It’s plastic free and meant to last a lifetime. The only part that gets disposed of are the blades which you can recycle at the right facilities (in the UK once you’ve collected them you can take them to your local recycling centre and pop them into the scrap metal container).
