Easy Peasy Greeny is over a year old now and something I was eager to start was product reviews. I already use and am familiar with many eco-friendly products so I might as well start recommending them. I love recommendations, I’m more likely to buy from one and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

One product I will always recommended is safety razors. I love them! They’ve been around for well over 100 years and I’m glad many people are starting to return to the old way of shaving. I previously wrote a blog about why making the switch is a great choice. As you can tell, I’m a huge fan!
It arrived in plastic-free packaging! A massive thumbs up from me!
All of the packaging is easily recycled and no plastic in sight. It even includes a blade to get you started and let’s not forget – it has a stand!
How am I getting on?
I’ve been using this for over two weeks and I absolutely love it. It’s very easy to use and my legs feel really smooth. I think it’s actually better than my old one (which I’ve put in my travel bag as a spare – always good to have a spare!). It’s got a good weight to it, easy to handle and the stand allows the razor to drip-dry.
Pros and cons
Of course, with any product review, there needs to be a pro and con section. Let’s start with the pros
- Has a stand – most I’ve seen don’t have that
- Smooth shave
- Double-edged shaving
- Easy screw function to replace the blade
- Handle has grooves for good grip when you’re hands are wet
- Good value for money
- There isn’t a cover for the head should you wish to put it in your travel bag without having to remove the blade – In fairness, I haven’t seen this with any other safety razor either.
Would I recommend this one?
A massive YES!
Here are two UK stockists I have come across.
&Keep – A UK company based in Dorset who sell a wide variety of eco-friendly and sustainable products.
Etsy – This is a UK based seller has 2,766 sales and 423 shop reviews!
As you can tell, I really love supporting UK based businesses!
The amount of razors that end up in landfill (and the oceans) is devastating and take hundreds of years to breakdown and it’s unlikely it would have fully decomposed after all that time. If you look after your razor, it can last a very long time. Plus, it will save you money!
