Shaving for the environment

Number Of Participants: 1

Chances are high that you are one of the persons who use a razor every time you shower, maybe even more often. Conventional razors use a lot of plastic components and even the parts that don’t have to be changed regularly are made of plastic. So why not do what our grandfathers (and maybe even some of our grandmothers) did: Use a metal shaver, also called a safety razor.

Yes, you will have to get used to it, but it’s worth trying: The razor blades shave more properly than their plastic covered counterparts and they don’t get blunt in such a short time. At the beginnig these safety razors look a little bit frightning, but don’t give up. It’s a matter of technique. Bonus: Enjoy the vintage feeling!

When I think about my childhood I think about sitting on the branches of the old apple tree in our garden and reading books about animals. Now grown up I spend my time working as a philologist, walking the dogs of the nearby animal sanctuary and exploring our beautiful German forests.
