Shaving has got to be one of the most sustainable methods of hair removal, perhaps even the most sustainable, but only if you sort yourself out with a stainless steel razor and ditch the Veet one. With a stainless steel razor, or safety razor as they are known, you never have to throw anything away apart from the steel blade which you should replace every 5 to 6 shaves.

Our advice would be go carefully using it for the first time, it can be a bit daunting that you’ve just got one blade to handle which is quite sharp and very much on display. Once you’ve mastered it however, we can guarantee that your legs will never have felt smoother.

We we love them: Depending on what brand you buy the razor comes in a completely recyclable cardboard box.
