FACT: The U.S. EPA estimates that 2 billion disposable razors are tossed each year.
We live in a outrageously disposable society, though “cheap” in cents it’s sure not making “sense” by costing us our future and the health of this planet.
Here’s a quote from Justin’s Facebook page:
Old is new again. The article says “there is an element of being a badass for shaving with a straight razor” Wow. I have been using the same straight razor for 15 years, so I must be really, really bad. LOL See article WET SHAVING IS BACK IN STYLE
Who knew? Old is definitely new again!
Originally, he started with a straight razor my dad had brought back with him from New Zealand and started shaving the old-fashioned way 15 years ago. My dad has since reverted back to shaving with a regular modern razor but has always avoided the electric shaver like the plague. Many times someone would try to “convert” my dad into using one by buying him the latest trendy electric shaver. Granted, he toyed with it because he has sensitive skin and the electric shaver was gentler for him. But he noise! That’s when I would hear him say his ever quoted mantra,” If it goes ‘whrrrrr’, I don’t want it.” The noise itself was very annoying to him, even more irritating than the razor burns on his face from the razor blades. So, he just went to a goatee and and kept his ‘stache which helped him deal with the problem somewhat.
Now, according to the article, Justin is a “macho man.” Unfortunately, he posted his use of the straight razor on his Facebook page sporting a profile picture of himself as a hairy-looking cave man type image. Like some one commented,“You use a Razor? I think you missed your whole face!….LOL” Which only says Justin will not be picked as the poster man for straight razor shaving anytime soon. *grin*
