People think with zero waste living you need to change who they are, but really it’s about embracing who you are in a sustainable way.
It’s important to choose shops that care about preserving the Earth, giving back, and selling products that are sustainable. That’s why I love Eco Roots, they check all the boxes. Eco Roots is an eco-conscious minimalist brand that’s based in Colorado. They’re a small, zero-waste shop that makes sure all of their products are ethically and sustainably sourced.
Beyond just the environmental cost, can we talk about the cost, cost? One Venus Razor Body is $11.99, and a set of four refills is $18.95. Assuming you switch your blades out every three weeks (which is average from above) you’ll spend about $100 on shaving each year.
Safety razors are made from stainless steel so if it does ever break, it’s fully recyclable. But, the chance of it breaking is very slim. The initial reusable razor costs $32 and a pack of 10 blades is $3.50. If you change your blade every 3 weeks you’ll be spending about $6 on blades a year..
If shaving just isn’t your thing, I totally respect that. There are other options besides using the best women’s razor!! - electric razor/trimmer - epilator - laser - sugar waxing - not shaving at all
