Cork oaks save up to 30 percent more CO2 than other trees. The bark of the cork oak is sustainably harvested every nine years and processed to cork products with hardly any waste. It is the only tree on earth whose bark you can peel without harming it. A cork oak whose bark is regularly harvested binds even more than three times as much CO2 as an unused cork oak.
According to the EPA, about 2 billion razors are thrown away every year in the US. Typical cartridge razors and disposable blades are non-recyclable, meaning all of this hazardous garbage ends up in landfill every year. Switching to wet shaving and reusable razors is a great way to avoid adding to this problem.
You also save money on repeatedly buying disposable razors. Only money you will spend is to buy the steel blades. Depending on shaving frequency, these 10 steel blades should last you 50-80 shaves. Why pay a shaving club and the postal service to ration cartridges to you one month at a time? Not to mention all the emissions and resources needed to ship these cartridges to you each month.
The cork-case is ground-up natural cork with glue binders, so not 100% compostable. It can be recycled and up-cycled. At the end-of-life, the cork case can be up-cycled for DIY beauty products, crafts or as an organizer for rings/ jewelry.
It can also be recycled into flooring, insulation, etc. We have partnered with ReCORK in the US who recycle all cork materials. They have drop-off locations all over the US - find the closest location to you. The collected corks from each location are sent to ReCORK with carbon-neutral shipping to minimize environmental impact.
With proper care, this razor should last you a lifetime. But if you have to dispose it, it is 100% recyclable with metal recycling.
The blade safe is 100% recyclable with metal recycling.
The blades need to carefully stored and recycled. Typically, you do NOT want to throw it with your curbside recycling. Check with your local municipality or metal scrap collection center for their scrap metal collection policy.
Store used blades carefully in the metal bank for safety. Once enough blades are collected, they can be dropped off together for recycling.
Consider reusing the blade safe container before disposing - it can be used as mini coin collector for kids or to store safety pins.
