FAQ: Eco-Friendly Shaving Accessories
What are Eco-Friendly Shaving Accessories?
Eco shaving extras and additions can include such things as plastic-free shaving soap, safety razor stands, blade disposal tins, hessian travel bags, replacement blades, shaving brushes, shaving soap tins and much more.
Do You Need a Stand for a Safety Razor?
The majority of people store their reusable safety razor in the bathroom, which can be a wet environment if it's not wiped down and ventilated properly. A safety razor stand prevents water damage to your razor, by not allowing the razor to lie in pools of water and moisture.
How Do You Dispose of Metal Blades?
Disposing of safety razor blades is safe to do so in a metal blade disposal tin, which is a necessary eco-friendly shaving accessory. Our tins are made from tin-plated steel and can store up to 100 blades. When the tin is full, paper tape over both the entry slit and the bottom of the tin.
For safety reasons, we advise you to recycle the whole tin filled with blades and don't empty from the bottom of the tin. Check with your local recycling centre before disposing of the full blade tin in the scrap metal section.
How Long Do Shaving Soap Bars Last?
Shaving soap bars lather up incredibly well and it's always better to be generous with how much soap you apply. Our natural shaving soaps will last depending on how often you shave and how big the shaving area is. For example, if you're shaving your face 2-3 times a week, your shaving soap is likely to last around 2 months.
Are All of Your Eco Shaving Accessories Plastic-Free?
Everything we stock is plastic free, including our safety razors, accessories and packaging. We're a plastic-free shaving business that offers eco-friendly alternatives to an industry that is notoriously wasteful and full of plastic.
