HOW TO GET STARTED

Moving to double-edge safety razors is generally a great move. Now come the little things to do to accommodate these razors. Razor disposal can be super easy. These little "razor banks" can make it easy to get rid of used blades. These small units can hold 50 blades or more so emptying doesn't need to be very frequent. These banks, again, are a great accessory to moving towards more sustainable systems.

EMBRACE

  1. Made from ceramic and produces minimal microplastics
  2. Has heirloom potential for long life
  3. Has a great aesthetic that can blend into many bathroom styles

Overall Sustainability Score - 90 / 100

Score Breakdown

Manufacturing (Score - 10/10) - Made close to its target market

Distribution (Score - 10/10) - Made close to its target market

Cost (Score - 5/10) - Roughly Roughly 2.5X the cost of plastic storage containers

Packaging (Score - 10/10) -  Comes in a nice paperboard box with limited to no plastic used

Effectiveness (Score - 10/10) - Very effective in keeping blades in an elegant container but requires moving to separate packaging for final disposal. Steel containers can be effectively tossed into recycling with the blades inside

Lifespan (Score - 10/10) - Likely an heirloom product that will last a lifetime

Fun (Score - 10/10) - Nice aesthetics and can blend into most bathroom styles

Relevance (Score - 10/10) -  Perfect for blade storage. However, will require transitioning to another container for final recycling disposal

Disposal (Score - 10/10) - The storage container is ceramic and can be disposed of without generating any microplastics

Recycling (Score - 5/10) - Ceramics cannot be recycled. The bottom cap appears to be silico but could be plastic
