Sustainably Chic

Shave with Wood, Brush with Bamboo

Something I love finding sustainable alternatives to are the products I use everyday {& throw out quite often!}. We travel quite a bit, and the items I end up leaving in the hotel bathroom are my razor and toothbrush. I'm better about this these days, but who knows how many natalie plastic razor handles are sitting in the landfill right now from my less conscious past - embarrassing. This is why I was so excited to come across Modest Planet, and their wooden razors. I have a feeling my traveling friends will be grateful to find this, too! They are very lightweight & hold up well in the shower. The razors can even be switched out with Mach3 & Venus blades. 

I made the switch to bamboo toothbrushes this past year, and really felt it was the easiest sustainable adjustment I've made. Since we change our toothbrushes every three months {or so}, replacing with a biodegradable material is a must! Crazy fact: There are over 50 million pounds of toothbrushes being thrown into US landfills a year. It's outrageous, and a problem we can easily fix. You can stock up with Modest Planet's 4-Pack on Amazon. Their bamboo toothbrushes are easy to hold, and get the job done. 

Modest Planet was created by Vincent Nguyen - a long time consumer of organic & environmentally products & an employee within the {organic} Consumer Packaged Goods Industry. Wanting to incorporate sustainability throughout his entire life, throwing away a toothbrush was no longer an option. Thank goodness for those who take initiative like Vincent & create products to make our lives a little less wasteful. These small switches can truly make a difference!
