Shaving

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.

    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!
