Quick Tip – Ditch the (Disposible) Razor

56% of women use disposable razors, according to Gillette.  

Don’t do it!  But just because you’re green doesn’t mean you have to stop shaving.

Here’s greener alternatives:

  • Reusable (changing the blade is way less waste.) Preserve has an awesome version for men OR women – The handle’s made from 100% recycled materials, it can last a lifetime (you can purchase the blades here) and you can recycle the #5 handle at Whole foods or through Preserve’s Gimme 5 program.
  • Use an energy-star efficient electric razor
  • Sharpen blades with the Razor Saver
