Kappi Reusable Safety Razor (Various colours)
Did you know?! In the US alone, it has been estimated that more than two billion razor blade heads are thrown into landfill each year. And that stat doesn’t even include the plastic disposable razors. Shaving cartridges are made of a mix of rubber and plastic (some even contain palm oil in the moisturizing strips) making them impossible to recycle and therefore destined for landfill. Don’t forget about the plastic trays they all come packaged in as well.
However, you can now put your worries aside as there is an amazing and far less wasteful alternative available here at Little Eco Shop.

Safety Razor vs. Modern Razor - A cost comparison.
The cost of our safety razors is truly a reflection of their quality. The genius of modern day shaving companies is that they make a loss on the shaver handle and make a HUGE profit on the replacement blades. So while modern razors blades seem cheap by comparison, over time they end up costing you big time. Compared to modern multi-blade cartridge heads costing around $3 per head, the Kappi safety razor uses traditional double-sided razor blades that only cost around 20-cents - around 15 times cheaper than the modern equivalent.
How to use your new Safety Razor:
Unpack your safety razor.
With dry hands, hold onto either side of the razor head and unscrew the handle anti-clockwise to loosen. The base will disconnect from the head.
Once the razor is disassembled, carefully unwrap the blade and place it onto the head of the razor.
After the blade is in place, reassemble the razor by screwing the handle clockwise to tighten.
Get shaving! For a smooth shave, we recommend soaking your skin with warm water, using a shave cream/gel/oil (or bar of soap) and take it slow! Be especially careful when shaving around ankles, knees etc. Use your razor on an angle (different for different areas) and apply very little to zero pressure.Once the blade begins to dull, replace your blade and put your used blade in a glass jar to store and eventually recycle.
