FFS Blade Recycling
The first Razor subscription brand to offer blade recycling to our customers. Once your blades arrive with us, they are stored safely until enough have been collected they are then ground down to break the materials apart. The metal and plastic elements are then separated… and all components are then ready to be recycled.

Ditch the disposables
Did you know it can take up to 1000 years for a disposable razor to biodegrade in landfill? On average you will get 3 shaves from a disposable razor before needing to throw it away because of dull blades, resulting in using 40-50 disposables per year that all end up in landfill.
Our Reusable Razor
Reducing single use plastic in bathrooms is what we live for! With our reusable handle and refill blades you can do just that. Once you are done with your blades, send them back to us and we will recycle them for you. Make the switch, better for you and the planet.
Carbon Black Caps
Carbon Black continues to be used in high volumes for plastics, due to its low cost and high covering power. However, the problem with this is that it absorbs Near Infrared Light (NIR) which cannot be detected by the recycling sorting facilities, and the result is that it ends up in landfill.
Our tube caps are made from PP which is a recyclable plastic. The black “masterbatch” that is used to create the colour is recyclable, as the black pigments used are oxide based so do not absorb the NIR rays. Therefore the sorting plants are able to determine the type of plastic being scanned and can sort and then recycle accordingly.
Our cream tubes are made from sugarcane polyethylene, a 100% renewable raw material, and can even be recyled at home (just give it a quick rinse first).
All our packaging is planet-friendly and is 100% recyclable. You can reuse our packaging to store your blades for recycling, but if you’re not using this, make sure to place into your recycling bin when you are finished.
The best way to dispose of your used razor blades is to recycle them. You can throw them away in your normal household bin but only if they are stored correctly and this method isn’t environmentally friendly!
Simply post them back to us and we’ll do the rest, ensuring they are safely recycled so they don’t end up in landfills!
It’s mainly disposable razors that have the biggest impact on the environment because most of the razor is non-biodegradable. The blades will rust away into nothing but the plastic handle and casing will be left for hundreds of years!
It has been estimated that 2 billion plastic razors end up in landfills each year which is an astronomical figure and many more end up in waterways and oceans too!
It’s not all doom and gloom though because you can have a positive impact on this figure by switching to a more sustainable shaving routine. Investing in one of our reusable razors will reduce the amount of disposable razors that end up in landfills!
Disposable razors have long been a problem for the environment and they haven’t become easier to recycle over the years. Most disposable razors can take up to 1,000 years to fully decompose!
