30 Bananas a Day!

So I have been slowly trying to reduce the amount of waste that I have in my life. I've started making my own laundry soap, deodorant, and am slowly working on doing the "no poo" method. However one thing I can't figure out is how to cut down on my shaving waste. Whether it be just disposing of the razor blades or using a disposable razor, I haven't really been able to find a "green" way to do this. I'm not a huge fan of waxing or using those nasty hair creams (I do not and refuse to use shaving cream because I really haven't had to to get a close shave). I also lack the money to even consider a laser treatment. I was just wondering what everyone else does to make their shaving more eco friendly. Thanks in advance everyone!

At the yoga festival I visited recently there were a lot of girls that went au naturel! I have never seen that much arm pit hair in my life! lol  I use an electric razor for women :)

just don't shave, it feels great to break free of society's expectations of women. don't like my leg hair? then stop checking out my legs. :)


Pubic hair helps spread pheromones, pubic hair keeps the genital area warm, pubic hair protects the genital areas, especially the vagina, from dirt, bacteria and viruses. Pubic hair is there to ease friction when parts of your body--or your body parts and someone else's body parts-- rub together.

What's the point of shaving? Just to look appealing to someone? Be yourself and do what you want, whether you shave or not :)

I use a good razor (rather than a disposable one) and invested in a blade sharpener which is pretty inexpensive.  That way you can sharpen the dull blades rather than replacing them so often which cuts down on the waste.  I also don't use shaving cream.  An electric razor would also be a good investment. :)

I wanted to thank everyone for the replies. I enjoy the feeling of shaving and I greatly respect those who do not. I just personally like the feeling of a fresh shave. 

Tiff_Hawkins: Could you let me know what kind of razor and stuff you were able to buy and use. I haven't found anything like that around where I live. Or maybe I am just not looking in the right places haha

Sure! :) I use a men's 5-blade Gillette Fusion (it seems to give a closer shave than other razors I've tried).  I got mine at Walmart, but you can find it in an abundance of stores.  The razor sharpener is an Ever Blade (which you can buy on Amazon for 14.99 prime eligible).  It's one of those As Seen on TV kind of products so I'm sure you can find that at other places as well. 

If you like a close shave a cutthroat does the business very very well. Takes a few tries (and nicks) to get good at it but ut can reduce your useage.

I suspect this is a little more difficult for body hair as there are area you will need o do with your non-master hand...
