What is the most eco sustainable way to shave?
Every year, two billion razors end up in landfills, generating tones of plastic waste and having a significant impact on the environment. Plastic disposable shaving razors quickly become blunt and rusted, so most people will discard one every few weeks. Plastic disposable razors have a short life period, which has a significant negative environmental impact over time. Despite this, many people continue to use disposable razors due to a lack of awareness about the more environmentally friendly and long-lasting razors that are available. You only need to go to your local pharmacy to notice the wide range of plastic and coloured razors available, which may be visually appealing but are not environmentally friendly.
If you've been using plastic razors for a long time and want to start reducing your environmental impact, there are so many more sustainable and reusable shaving equipment to choose from. Jag Shaving offers a wide range of high-quality, ecologically friendly shaving products that allow our customers to reduce their carbon footprint while still receiving a close shave and enjoying a pleasurable grooming routine.
What is the best environmentally friendly way to shave?
Here are some of the best ways to shave while being environmentally conscious.
Make use of tools that aren't made of plastic:
To begin, choose a razor that is both environmentally friendly and effective for you. Traditional wet shaving tools are ideal for helping the environment; double-edge safety razors and straight razors are two great options for switching to a more sustainable and plastic-free shaving regimen. All of the safety razors we sell are considered zero-waste, and if properly cared for and maintained, they may last a long time. Only the razor blades will need to be replaced, which are quite cheap and can be found locally or online. You have a variety of metal options to choose from when seeking for a trustworthy safety razor, including stainless steel, brass, and chrome.
Spending a little more on a high-quality metal safety razor will help you reduce waste, save money in the long run, and feel confident that you're shaving responsibly.
Your blades should be recycled in the following way:
Although you can't throw individual metal razor blades in your recycling bin, you can collect them in a metal tin over time and recycle them all at once at a dedicated recycling centre. It may seem tiny, but small changes to your shaving routine, such as this, can have a major influence on the environment.
Instead of a plastic bottle, why not use an environmentally friendly shaving foam or liquid? We have a large selection of shaving soaps, including bars, sticks, and recyclable containers like glass or tin that you can refill rather than discard. Organic shaving can also be beneficial.
Your post-shave hygiene routine, like your shaving soap, can be made much more environmentally friendly. Rather than purchasing plastic-wrapped items, shop The English Shaving Company's selection of glass and tin post-shave balms and aftershaves to nourish your skin while lowering your carbon footprint.
Make sure you don't shave too close to your face:
Finally, don't make shaving a daily ritual for yourself. If you want a clean, freshly shaved appearance every morning, go for it. Those who find themselves shaving every day due to cultural pressures to look a certain way may want to reconsider their shaving habits. If you give your hair and skin more time to develop and relax between shaves, you'll notice a difference in the condition of your skin and the number of razors or razor blades you have to dispose of each month.
