4) Bamboo Safety Razor 22 Euros

Eco-friendly-razor_1296x


Unfortunately, billions of plastic razors and cartridges are thrown away every year. They cannot be recycled, as the metal is embedded in plastic, meaning the plastic is burned or ends up in nature. Traditional safety razors are an effective swap for plastic-free shaving. The zero-waste razor uses one single blade made from stainless steel which is easily recyclable.

5) Indosole Flip flops $49 SGD
