Leaf Shave is a eco-minded small biz founded by two Adams who set out to create a better razor that is also better for the environment. Their packaging is 100% plastic-free, and through financing initiatives to offset 100% of the company’s CO2e emissions they’ve become Climate Neutral certified.
I know, I know — $80+ for a razor feels pretty steep, but plastic razors really add up over time and this thing is STURDY. When first trying to eco-swap my shave routine I tried a regular safety razor because it was a lot cheaper and I basically bled to death (kidding, but I did cut myself a lot). It works really well for some people, but I had really come to rely on the pivoting head of the plastic razors I learned on. So imagine my pure delight when I finally snagged one of these beauties and could return to shaving without all the cuts and blood. It’s really easy to change the blades, and I find myself getting a better shave because I’m not putting off buying another razor like I would before. It’s proven to be a great investment that not only keeps plastic razors out of landfills, but all the plastic packaging they come in, too!
