Why choose an eco-friendly safety razor?
Plastic safety razors may be able to give you a good shave, but they are bad for the environment. Around 2 billion of these razors are disposed of each year and they end up in landfill sites. The plastic then pollutes the earth, and water supplies, with toxins. This eco-friendly safety razor has a handle which is made from bamboo. Bamboo is biodegradable and the metal which the razor contains can be recycled. This means that the razor is more friendly to the environment than plastic versions.

Blades cannot simply be thrown into the blue bin for recycling, as a safety precaution. In San Mateo county, Rethink Waste asks that spent blades be taken to the public recycling center for hazardous items at 333 Shoreway Road, San Carlos. It can be accessed through Gate #1, and is open M-Sat 8:30am - 4pm.
Alternatively, store spent blades in a mason jar or empty can of them, seal it and we will be happy to collect spent blades and recycle them for customers. (If absolutely necessary to throw them in the black bin for whatever reason, wrap in paper before disposing!)
