JUNKYARD GROOMING UTILITY
Do you have body hair that you want to get rid of? Well, that's what razors are for! These plastic handles connected to blade attachments will help you achieve the clean look you desire. But when it's all worn out and thrown away, it will end up in landfills because they cannot be recycled and they will not effectively decompose.
Plastic razors seem normal in
this throwaway society.
There are so many better quality and sustainable options out there!
We live in a time where many things are made to be thrown away. Plastic, disposable razors are one of many. They're cheap to make and convenient to throw away. The majority of disposable razors are non-biodegradable.
Safety razors are the long-lasting alternative. They were originally designed to last a lifetime. Safety razors are made using durable metals and use fully recyclable blades. It would require an initial investment, but you will probably never have to buy another razor again.
If you're not looking to switch to this different kind of shaving, consider subscription razor companies that ship additional blades to you however often you want. Alternately, look for razors made out of recycled materials.
