A SIMPLE Shave

Another day and another one of my favorite sustainable swaps! Ditch the disposable razors for reusable ones. Watch this episode on YouTube here:




The Simple Truth

Did you know a staggering 2 billion plastic razors find their way into landfills each year, in the United States alone?!

That's enough razors to circle the globe five times annually!


It's time to break this cycle of waste and embrace a more sustainable approach to grooming.


The Simple Solution

So, what's the solution? Enter the safety razor. My go-to pick is the Rose Gold Double Edge Safety Razor, available for just $9.99 on Amazon.


This elegant, reusable razor not only offers a superior shave but minimizes environmental impact.


My Simple Confession

I've been using mine since August—yes, nearly nine months with the same blade! And let me tell you, it still provides a close, smooth shave every time. (I do not recommend this, typically every 10 shaves but mine was still giving me a great close shave so...?)


Making the Switch!

Now, I'll be honest—there's a bit of a learning curve when you first switch to a safety razor. You might experience a few nicks and cuts as you adjust to the technique. (45 degree angle!) But trust me, it's worth sticking with it. Once you get the hang of it, you'll wonder why you ever bothered with disposable razors.


But hey, I get it—everyone's preferences are different.


If you're looking for alternatives, there's also the Leaf razor, a beautifully designed option with rave reviews. While it didn't quite work for me personally, many swear by its performance. It's a bit pricier at around $70-$80, but still a worthwhile investment in sustainability.


Why you'll SIMPLY love it!

Now, let's talk about the perks of making the switch.

  • Reducing your plastic footprint,

  • Super cost effective! A pack of 50 razor blades costs less than $20 and lasts ages.

  • Upgrade your shower aesthetic! Using a durable, stylish razor in your shower instead of flimsy plastic ones just elevates the whole shaving experience.

  • A close shave! My legs have never felt smoother and it's such a close shave it lasts longer between shaving.


Beer of the week

This week's beer recommendation is the Compass Rose IPA from Service Brewing—a refreshing brew with hints of grapefruit and citrus, perfect for a shower beer and unwinding with your sustainable shave. (kidding, but am I?)


My favorite sustainable brands to celebrate Earth Month

From eco-friendly clothing to zero-waste toiletries, now's the time to stock up on essentials while supporting companies committed to positive change. Many are offering special discounts all month.

  • Papaya: reusable paper towels

  • Pact: sustainable underpinnings (bras + undertwear etc)

  • Litefoot: Refillery (they offer shipping!)

  • Bombas: Socks and stuff

  • Plant paper tp: best toilet paper ever

  • Huppy: my favorite toothpaste! (Seriously, I've tried them ALL!)


Just being simple


"So a cowboy walked into a barber shop. He sat in the barber's chair and said, I'll have a shave and a shoe shine. The barber lathered his face and started dropping the straight razor while a very busty woman knelt down and began to shine his shoes.

The cowboy said, young lady, you and I should go and spend some time in a hotel room.

The woman replied, I'm married and my husband wouldn't like that.

The cowboy said, tell him you're working overtime and I'll pay you the difference. Then the woman said, You tell him. He's the one shaving you."


Remember, every sustainable swap we make brings us one step closer to a greener, cleaner future. So let's continue this journey together, one shave at a time. Happy #EarthDayEVERYDAY
