Sustainable Credentials

Leaf Shave has been Certified Climate Neutral since 2019.

Blade Recycling Program

Leaf offers an in-house blade recycling program, so you can recycle your blades safely once you’re done using them. This program aims to provide an option to keep metal blades out of landfills, helping you close the loop on your shave.

How does it work?

Follow the steps on this page to recycle your metal blades. After replacing your razor with a fresh blade, Leaf recommends storing used blades together in something like their blade tin, or you can up-cycle an old mint tin. Then, once your tin is full, you can either bring your tin to a local scrap metal facility that will recycle your blades or send your blades back to Leaf for recycling.
