    ASSESSMENT AS OF: JANUARY 2024

    HOW TO GET STARTED

    1. Finish your last can of shaving cream
    2. Buy a disc of solid shaving soap
    3. Buy a shaving soap dish to hold the shaving soap
    4. Buy a shaving brush holder
    5. Use these in the shower if desired. Use a signal mirror in the shower to make shaving the shower easier
    6. Use the brush until the end of its life and then drop it into recycling

    EMBRACE

    1. Can be used for over a decade if properly cared for
    2. Is made of infinitely recyclable stainless steel
    3. Is made of biodegradable badger hair
    4. Will be cheaper over the long run when used with shaving soap versus canned shaving cream


    AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

    Cans of Shaving Cream


    AVOID

    1. Many shaving creams use preservatives to extend shelf life
    2. Shaving cream cans are often mixed material and cannot be easily recycled
    3. Inevitably these will end up in landfills and turn into microplastics


    Noteworthy Product Attributes

    Shaving cream comes in hard-to-recycle mixed material cans. Shaving cream also contains preservatives to extend shelf life. Going through 12 or more of these cans a year is not uncommon.
