Day 96: Replaced Blade in Retro Razor

Day 96: Replaced Blade in Retro Razor

I changed the blade in my Retro Razor. I recently changed to using the Retro Razor from using the Preserve Razor.

According to the EPA, two billion disposable razors are landfilled annually. 2,000,000,000.

The Retro Razor uses a double sided blade and is made from hefty copper chrome and alloy. Read more from Retro Razor on the ecological benefits of double edge shaving.

What was your simple green act for the day?

    I shave my head also and using a safety razor sounds good but scares the crap out of me...
  • The first one or two times, it was a bit scary (but not rough). Now I love the damned thing. Closest shave ever.
  • I have one of those too. Where are you getting your blades? I found an awesome source via eBay. Send me a tweet and I'll find the link for you. I posted about plastic-free shaving on Fake Plastic Fish ( back in 2007.
  • I'm still working on the blades that were shipped with it. I'll hit you up, but I'm sure there is a spot by me that has them.
