6 ways to Green Your Shaving
When it comes to shaving green, start by ridding your medicine cabinet of health- and eco-unfriendly petrochemical-based shaving creams and aftershaves. Next, cut back on your shaving-related water and energy consumption by not letting the water run and considering some green gadgets for a close shave. Finally, choose a razor that is eco-friendly, either made from recycled materials or charged with green power.
Natural shaving creams replace chemicals like TEA with moisturizing ingredients like vitamin E, which is healthier for your skin and safer for the planet.
Decrease waste and reduce the energy and water consumption associated with your shaving routine: choose an electric razor powered by the sun, a razor with reusable and/or recycled parts, or a reusable straight razor blade.
Save up to 3,000 gallons of water every year simply by turning off the faucet while you shave. That's almost enough to fill an olympic-sized swimming pool half way!
Soothe and refresh your skin post-shave with alcohol-free, plant-based balms, lotions, and oils.
Pitch those old petroleum-based hair removal waxes. Update your waxing routine with creams, body sugars, and other hair removal products made with plant-based, natural ingredients.
Avoid products with excessive packaging that automatically end up in your bathroom bin.
