Gallery: Cutting Edge Options for Sustainable Shaving

Solar-powered electric shavers are ideal alternatives to straight razors as far as sustainability and longevity are concerned. Since they rely on solar power to charge their batteries, you can use these shavers so long as the sun continues to shine. With a solar shaver, you don't have to worry about lugging extra batteries, extension cords, or shaving creams/balms with you when you travel, and you can keep neatly trimmed wherever you go. You might not get quite as clean and close a shave with one of these as you would with a blade, but as far as convenience and speed goes, it only takes a minute or two to maneuver a shaver around your face as opposed to the time needed to lather up and scrape with a bladed razor.
