Albatross Shaves Replacement Blades - 10 Pack
High quality double-edged razor blades
Item: Albatross Double Edged Safety Razor with 10 Free Blades
Mission: Over 2 billion disposable plastic razors are thrown out each year in the U.S. alone. That's enough to wrap around the Earth end-to-end 6 times! By eliminating plastic from the shaving equation we hope to prevent the creation of unnecessary plastic waste and the pollution associated with it. We are immensely excited about this campaign because the experience of using a safety razor is SO MUCH BETTER than when one uses a disposable. This fact allows us to genuinely believe that we can prevent a hell of a lot of single use plastics from messing up our planet.
Description: High quality double-edged razor blades
Materials: Stainless Steel
Take Back Program: The Albatross Blade Take Back Program exists because not all municipal recycling companies currently accept used razor blades. They have developed a used blade take back program for all Double Edged safety razor blades.
Simply collect your used blades in the envelope they come in when you buy Albatross replacement blades. When you've gone through a pack of blades, seal that envelope and insert it into any other envelope at least 3.5 X 5 large (USPS minimum) and send to:
PO Box 2254
Berkeley, CA 94702
It is important for them to re-utilize the stainless steel our blades are made of at the highest level possible. They aim to recycle the steel into a potentially higher value product in terms of CO2 mitigation and energy savings than the original blades themselves over the long run. If you use non-Albatross blades, they will accept those blades too. You can store and ship your blades in a variety of containers, such as used pill bottles, a used soup can duct taped on one end, or by using a heavy weight internal envelope inserted into another envelope as is our standard procedure.
