I believe in adopting sustainable practices in our daily or recurring maintenance activities. Recently, I measured the amount of water I spend at the sink and shifted to mug-based shaving (rinsing the razor by dipping it in a mug of water). However, there is another thing that troubles me, the use of plastic in my preferred razor.
Mostly, I use the Gillette Mach 3 razor . I have tried other cheaper razors as well, but I have settled with this for a balance of cost and skin care. I am aware of stainless steel blades that are cheap that'll go into steel razor slots but I am afraid they may cut my skin, I tend to be careless and lost in thought while shaving, LoL.
The Mach 3 lasts a month or so for me and I shave once in three days. Is there an equivalently comfortable (not-cutting-skin guaranteed) razor that does not use plastic, and at comparable (or little higher) cost, i.e. $2 per cartridge ? Come to think of it, I won't mind spending more for a sustainable alternative with equivalent benefits ?
