The EPA estimates that 2 billion razors are thrown away each year in the United States alone (1). This is an old stat too so it’s likely to have increased with our population and the disposable options now available. Other than the blades in some countries & facilities, razors aren’t recycled and end up in landfill. And that doesn’t even account for the plastic packaging they all come in.

By purchasing this product you are also reducing major plastic waste, supporting our education and research across the world, providing jobs to vulnerable women in Cambodia in our own little product centre, and helping to support environmentalism & education to kids and communities in Cambodia.

Fabric
Our produce bags are made from 100% pure, sustainable hemp from a small farm in Thailand. Hemp is the most eco-friendly fabric and we do not blend it with cottons or nylon.

Drawstring
The drawstring of the bag is made from 100% hemp twine from the same place in Thailand. It is twisted at our small, ethical sewing centre to make the cord.

Label
Our labels are made from the off-cuts we save whilst cutting our products. This helps us reduce waste as much as possible and makes the labels 100% pure hemp.

Included in this item is:

Your selection of produce bags
1 x eco-friendly product package

Make sure you wash out your razor after each session and give it a good wash when swapping out blades. Simply screw it open, rinse out and replace the blade. You’re set!

Where products are wrapped, our tissue paper is custom designed, eco-friendly printed with vegetable ink. The tissue paper is acid, lignin and sulfur free and FSC certified (Forest Stewardship Council to promote sustainable forestry).

Our mailers and envelopes are made from recycled materials. Our thank you cards are made from 100% recycled cotton t-shirts. We use paper tape for any additional closures. Please compost and recycle our packaging as appropriate.

These razors are designed to last for life but if they reach end of life or are unable to be repaired, please check with your local recycling facility as these should be recyclable.
