2 Billion (yes BILLION) disposable razors are purchased and then tossed into our landfills in the US every year!
(and I’m no math wizard, but I bet there is a ton of icky plastic packaging that adds to this mess)
Forgive me for being a diva about this, but I’m just not ready to have fuzzy legs in the summer . . . we’ve written and talked about this topic before and I always get some grief about how going hairy is the natural and hence the greenest way to go. This may be true, but I’m just not there yet. So, if you are offended by my desire for smooth legs (and less hairy other parts) in the summer, just click away from this post and accept my apologies in advance. BUT, if you are like me and you care a great deal about the environment, but don’t want to be too crunchy about it when it comes to personal leg hair style, read on!
So, if we are past the debate about smooth v. furry, let’s move on to how we can do it greener, shall we?
Go Electric? Ok, seems counter-intuitive and I’ve personally never used an electric shaver on my legs, but perhaps I should consider it:
It saves on three important resources, WATER, MONEY & SHAVING CREAM
A LOT less waste headed to the landfill
You can buy a solar-powered or rechargeable one (to minimize batteries and dirty electricity)
