Over 2 billion disposable plastic razors are thrown out each year in the U.S. alone. A safety razor is a fantastic alternative to disposable razors, and this one can last you a lifetime. This attractive stainless steel razor is appropriate for all your shaving needs, regardless of your gender.
As women, we got sick of paying more for our razors just because they’re pink and come with fancy features (that we were never quite convinced were necessary). We bring you this sleek alternative. It’s unisex, easy to travel with, and reusable for a lifetime. 10 replacement blades are just $1.50!
Packaging: None. The replacement blades come in a small recyclable envelope.
Use and care: Allow the weight of the razor to guide you; never press down with the razor head or drag it across your skin like you might with a disposable razor. Use a shaving soap for best results. When you follow these tips, you'll have a cleaner, safer shave. To travel, simply remove the blade. Dry off the razor after each use and replace the blade when it becomes dull; Bea Johnson says her sons take the razor head apart to let the blade dry after every shave, and the blades last them for an impressive 6 months!
Footprint: Manufactured in China through an environmental factory.
End of life: Not all municipalities accept razor blades for recycling, so remember to take advantage of Albatross' wonderful Blade Take Back program.
Simply collect your used blades in the envelope they come in when you buy Albatross replacement blades. When you’ve gone through a pack of blades, seal that envelope and insert it into any other envelope at least 3.5” X 5” large (USPS minimum) and send to:
PO Box 2254
Berkeley, CA 94702
It is important for them to re-utilize the stainless steel their blades are made of at the highest level possible. They aim to recycle the steel into a potentially higher value product in terms of CO2 mitigation and energy savings than the original blades themselves over the long run.
