Take a peek at the razor tucked away in your bathroom cabinet or counter—is it plastic? Disposable? Is there another whole bag of them scurried away in the drawer? Quit using those, pronto! We bet that if you took all the plastic disposable shaving razors people around the world have tossed into the bin, you could make a landfill the size of Texas. For those without epilators or deep pockets for regular waxing, it is time to go eco-friendly with sustainable razors.
Going green when it comes to shaving is three-pronged: aside from one that can be reloaded perpetually, the stick should be made of recyclable, sustainable materials or recycled plastic, and, ideally, the blades made by the brand should also be recyclable. Luckily, there are loads of razors you can buy online right now that fulfill at least two out of those three criteria.

Also note that these razors are super chic looking, so if you’re picturing something that looks like your boyfriend’s crusty razor, think again. And for a razor that’s going to be with you for a very long time, make it one that’ll only add more style to your bathroom. Moving on from those candy-cane-looking razors to something so much easier on the eyes is another reason to opt for sustainability. A rose gold razor, anyone?
