Big Box of Razors understands the environmental impact of disposable razors on the oceans, landfills, and environment. We are actively investing in research and development into fully biodegradable razor blades.
A portion of our profits are used to invest in the design and development of fully biodegradable and sustainable disposable razor blades. We are currently selling a 35% Wheat Straw / 65% Plastic disposable razor that is a step in the direction toward fully biodegradable razor products.
Despite the many challenges of plastics and the various environmental impacts, disposable razors are a necessity in a lot of industries including healthcare, hospitality, tattoo shops, and others where it is required to use a new razor on every patient or customer. In these cases it is not cost effective for the various companies to purchase high end safety razors for a one time use. There are beneficial uses of one time use disposable razors and recycling them properly must be a priority. Wheat straw based products are a potential game changer if the entire handle can be made of wheat straw or recycled plastic materials.
