Safety razors for women – yes, it’s a thing. Why let men have all the low-waste action?
I am, perhaps, uniquely unqualified to talk about shaving with a safety razor. Being the whitest redhead, I’ve got such light hair you likely can’t tell whether I shaved yesterday or three months ago unless you’re feeling my leg. (Please don’t do that.)
Still. I am a person that occasionally shaves my legs. When I started my zero waste journey, switching away from plastic razors seemed like a simple, extremely effective way to get started. The EPA estimates that 2 billion razors are thrown away each year, so it’s critically important to move away from such an egregious waste area.
Enter shaving with a safety razor.
And yes, safety razors for women, specifically!(more…)
