My male office-mates know I’m an advocate of double-edge razors: they save money, plastic and provide a superior shave.
Martin Higgins (Plasticless.com) had a post today about safety razors — but if you see the one he notes, avoid it; I got one and it’s awful — and the subject of shaving brushes came up in the comments.
And further, what if you want a brush that’s plastic-free and animal-free? Well, tough. It’s one way or another. And given the choice, I’ll take a brush with plastic and no animal bristles. (I also wear plastic, leather-free shoes.)
Fortunately, the Body Shop has one with synthetic bristles (read: plastic) and a wooden handle, which makes up for the plastic handles they usually have.
