Beauty Beat: Introducing Schick’s New Eco-Friendly Razor

February 6, 2012 • Beauty, Fashion Blog


Everything is going green! Even your razor! Schick® Xtreme3® is debuting an eco-friendly razor designed to keep plastic out of landfills. The new Schick® Xtreme3® Eco™ Razor is the first disposable razor to use 100% recycled plastic in the production of its handle and 100 percent post-consumer paper in its packaging. Schick® estimates they’ll be saving over 103,000 pounds of virgin plastic material and 15,500 pounds of virgin paper from going into landfills each year by using recycled materials in the new razor.

“We know consumers are doing their part to live more sustainably, and we wanted to provide a simple way for them to do so with their shave,” said Suma Nagaraj, brand manager for Schick Xtreme3. “At Schick, we’re taking proactive steps to minimize the impact of our products and manufacturing processes on the environment, and we’re continually looking for ways to improve—creating this product was the next step in our journey.”

I promise it’s the same clean, close shave you are used to from Schick, but a little more environmentally friendly.

Currently the Schick® Xtreme3® Eco™ is available for both men and women at Wal-Mart. More retail outlets will be carrying them come April. For more information, visit,
