The greener way to shave

I recently found out about a new shaving product for men by Canadian company Cromwell & Cruthers. It's a shaving oil – a blend of natural oils including avocado, sweet almond and sandalwood, plus menthol, aloe vera and vitamin E – and comes in a tiny 15 mL vial that retails for $4.50 (you can buy it online at Mountain Equipment Co-op). shaving oil15 mL may seem small, but you only need 4 or 5 drops at a time, which means the whole bottle lasts for up to 100 shaves – and that, plus the natural ingredients, is what makes it eco-friendly: less product, less packaging, and less waste. My tester gives the product a thumbs-up, especially as he recently took a trip and loved how little space it took up compared to his old shaving cream. And as a side note, there's no reason the men have to keep the oil to themselves – it will work just as well on legs as on faces. For the greenest shave, pair the shaving oil with a recycled-plastic razor from Preserve, available at homedepot.ca.
