You may have noticed that here at King of Shaves, we are not shy about telling the world how good we are at what we do.
But we’re also pretty proud of the fact that our packaging does much less harm to the environment than that of traditional manufacturers.
At King of Shaves, we’re pleased to say we support eco shaving with our environmentally-friendly packaging.
Shaving foam or gel is usually delivered in a pressurised aluminium or steel can that also features a plastic valve and overcap.
And, of course, hydrocarbon gases or compressed air are present whenever you have a pressurised delivery device.
That’s an awfully big burden to place on the environment with a lot of resources being used to produce something that lasts 30 or 40 shaves and is difficult to recycle – if it is lucky enough to make it to a recycling centre.
All of our products are packaged in plastic rather than metal. And the containers they come in are not pressurised, taking us one step closer to eco-friendly shaving.
That means we are having dramatically less impact on the environment and are consuming considerably fewer resources in manufacture.
Our packaging is all made of plastic, which means it is much more easily recyclable.
And we encourage all of our customers to ensure they dispose of that packaging in a responsible manner. From your shaving gel, to your beard oil, to your King of Shaves serum – it can all be recycled.
Perhaps you have seen the extraordinary figures about the effect of discarded plastic on our oceans.
Of the 300 million tons of plastic produced every year across the globe, it is estimated that over 8 million tons is likely to end up in the sea. Indeed, it has even been claimed that all the fish in our oceans will be outweighed by sea-borne plastic by the year 2050.
So, while King of Shaves is really pleased to have more eco-friendly packaging that does less harm to the environment to produce, we are also asking that you dispose of it in the right way, where it can be recycled.
We’re proud of being different at King Of Shaves.
And we think it is great that, with the help of our customers, we are doing our own bit to ensure the health of the planet for future generations.
Help us support eco-friendly shaving today and join our kingdom at King of Shaves.
