Obviously the most eco-friendly way to go is to let your facial hair grow wild. That's not an option for most people though -- hippie beards tend not to go over well in most offices. Disposable razors won't contribute to waist of electricity, but their disposability still adds unnecessary global waste. For those who want to go electric, the new Razor from Braun's Energy-Star line looks like the best option.
Implications - The shaver essentially uses 64 per cent less energy than competitors. The company anticipates the product to save over 12 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions annually. According to Proctor & Gamble, this is the equivalent of "removing 1,073 cars from the road, planting 1,526 acres of forest, or lighting 5,861 homes for a year."
