There has never been a better time to go eco and transition to zero waste shaving, we humans get through billions of razors every year. Disposable plastic ones, metal and plastic reusable ones with disposable heads- all of these end up in landfill and take centuries, if not millennia to break down. Moreover, we slather ourselves in foaming creams and chemical-based balms that come in aerosols or plastic packaging, that also take many lifetimes to disappear.
Foaming soaps and creams can also be irritants as some of the ingredients used can trigger reactions, dry the skin, and cause redness. In addition to this, we need to be ever-conscious of what goes down the plughole, swapping out products with artificial ingredients in favour of more natural, organic and zero waste shaving alternatives.
Lastly, if you like to use shaving brushes, you need to consider the fact that most modern brushes use animal hair, therefore cannot truly be considered as vegan or cruelty free. That is why we advocate for using synthetic fibres instead.
At Peace With The Wild, we have worked hard to curate a collection of what we believe are some of the finest zero waste shaving products out there. With a focus on vegan, cruelty-free, plastic-free, eco, natural and organic qualities, we have on offer a fine range of products that should make your transition to zero waste shaving and the shave itself, pain free.
All of our organic creams and natural soaps come in aluminium tins, free from any plastic packaging and our eco razors are made with sustainable bamboo handles. Vegan brushes come with synthetic hair and handles made of sustainable wood such as Ash. Furthermore, our blades are metal and can be re-sharpened, recycled, or disposed of safely, rather than festering in a landfill for years to come.
For a guilt-free, plastic-free, natural, zero waste shaving experience, delve into this section to discover how making the change will benefit not just the world around you, but you as well.
