1. Carefully remove the blade from your razor.
2. If you own a Blade Bank, post the used blade through the slot. If not, you can store used blades in an old tin.
3. When your Blade Bank is full, recycle the entire tin according to your local councils guidelines. In most cases, you can pop the tin in your household recycling bin.
The blades are made from stainless steel so they are 100% metal. No plastic or synthetics means they can be easily recycled.
Double edged razor blades cut directly at the skin's surface without the irritating effects of a multi-blade. With no need to apply downward pressure, irritation and ingrown hairs are kept to a minimum.
You’ll save time and money compared to multi-bladed razors and get a smoother shave every time.
Four the Planet
Disposable razors are made of a mixture of plastic and metal, meaning they’re costly and difficult to recycle effectively, so they end up clogging up landfill instead.
In fact, over 2 billion of the things are thrown away every year. And it's not just the razor itself that can't be recycled; replacement blades are also encased in plastic, meaning they’re difficult to recycle too.
Many people today are becoming more environmentally conscious when it comes to the products they use on a daily basis. When it comes to shaving, buying disposable plastic razors is not very eco-friendly. Double edged razor blades are an alternative way to shave that is safe, inexpensive and environmentally friendly.
How to Use
1. Twist your razor from the base to open the head.
2. Carefully remove the blade from the wax paper.
3. Hold the blade by the short edges and carefully slide over the ridge within the razors head.
4. Close your razor tightly.
Use With a Blade Bank
Safely store and recycle used blades with a Blade Bank.
A Blade Bank is a small, money-box like tin. When you're finished with a blade, just post it through the slot.
Your Blade Bank should hold anywhere up to 100 blades. Once it's full, simply pop it in the recycling (always check with your local council with regards local recycling policies).
Don't be plastic! Keep it real.
Shaving your pits is up to you. Saving the planet is up to us all.
