Two billion razors are thrown away each year! This is something we don’t often think about! There is actually a razor out there that is good for the environment that already exist…SAFETY RAZORS!
Before I get into that…the two common razors that people use:
The first kind is the razor that has one set of blades on them. After a week or two of using this razor, you throw it away. And let’s be honest. Do we really get the close shave that we want. I always end up with cuts on my leg from razors like theses.
The other kind is a razor that comes with about two to three replaceable razors. After you use up all the razors you throw them out. These razors never seem to get a close enough shave either. Plus their expensive!
The important thing to take away is RAZORS ARE NOT RECYCLABLE! That’s right, every time you throw away a razor it is ending up in landfills. Think about how many of these razors you use in a year!! Don’t worry the solution already exists! Safety Razors will be the last purchase you’ll ever make on a razor!
People are raving that:
- They are getting a closer shave
- No more dots on their legs
- Safe to leave in shower
- Their saving money
- Their helping the environment
What you need to do:
Make a one time purchase of about $20 (sometimes less) and buy a Safety Razor!
For only $12, you can get 100 blades too! (This will last you for years!) You do the math of those savings!
All you do with the uses razors is out them in a can to recycle them. The company ASTRA takes care of it and reuses the materials.
The cost upfront is a bit more than a traditional razor but in the long run you will be saving money and the Earth! Think about how many disposable razors you throw away, every time your spending $10-$20…that adds up really quick! Again think about how many disposable razors you have thrown away in your lifetime, they are all sitting in a landfill as we speak.
Be the change and make the switch! Remember… small changes make a big difference!
