How do you get rid of unwanted hair on your body? I think the majority of people use razors. I know I do! I tried waxing once. Just once. That was enough for me! 😉 Shaving is annoying because you have to do it so often (at least in theory…I’m likely to shave my legs just once or twice a week, especially in the colder months!). But once you get used to using a razor, it is the least painful way to get rid of hair. What I don’t like about using disposable razors is just that…they are disposable. And so, they contribute to waste.
Schick has just launched a new product in their line, Intuition Naturals. It is the razor with environmentally friendly packaging! The packaging eliminates the former plastic package and is now made with 55% post-consumer recycled paperboard, 25% post=consumer recycled window and VOC-free inks.
Wanna know what I think about this? I think it is a good start. But I wouldn’t go as far as to call this razor “green.” After all, the razor itself still comes shrink-wrapped in plastic and it comes with a plastic razor holder for the shower and a plastic cap for the razor, both of which I think can be done away with with little to no grumbling from customers.
But still, Schick is headed in the right direction, and the best way that we can get other companies to follow suit is to support this move with our dollars. I hope that Schick has just raised the bar and set a new standard, and once other companies are offering the same thing, I hope Schick will take going green to the next level and eliminate even more plastic from its products.
Other features of the Schick Intuition Naturals razor are as follows:
- No need for shave gel, soap or body wash, as you can lather and shave in one easy step
- 4 blades, which helps eliminate nicks and cuts, leaving a very smooth shave
- ergonomic handle
The razor retails for $9.29 and $9.99 for a 3 ct of blades, or you can get 6 for $17.59
