How To Properly Store and Recycle Used Injector Blades

With the introduction of multi-blade cartridge razors, we traded the idea of convenience for a huge contribution to plastic waste in the world. The good news: there's a better way.

You may not know this, but there is a ton of waste created through shaving routines today. With the introduction of multi-blade cartridge razors, we traded the idea of convenience for a huge contribution to plastic waste in the world.

What changed? The combination of materials used to produce the majority of disposable razors make them extremely challenging to recycle. Most cities' recycling programs won't accept them, which leads their to journey to clog a landfill. The impact: billions of plastic razors and refill blade cartridges thrown into landfills every year.

That's over 150 million pounds of plastic waste. Yearly.

There's a Better Way

The good news is that there is another way to shave. A solid metal safety razor (like the, ahem, Single Edge) has not only a better impact on the environment but also your wallet. We designed the razor handles to last the rest of your life and then even to be handed down to the next generation. And the good news doesn't stop there.

One of our injector blades on average provide 6-10 close, comfortable shave. We've even had some customers get upwards of 15 shaves out of a single blade. Since our blades last longer, it means less blades are used in your shave routine and less overall waste.

 

Storing & Recycling Injector Blades

One of the unique features about a injector blade pack is the pack itself. Each Single Edge razor will ship with one pack of 8 stainless steel razor blades inside it. If you look at the back of the blade pack, you will notice a nifty opening to insert and store your used blades until you finish the entire pack. No more sharp objects lying in your trash can or recycling bin for unsuspecting individuals.

Once you finish using all 8 blades, you can toss the entire pack with the stored blades into your recycling bin. Much safer and better for the environment.
