Razor-Recycling Initiatives

grüum Takes Back Customers' Returned Razor Heads for Private Recycling

— February 2, 2019 — Eco
Consumers are eager to participate in waste-reducing initiatives and support start-ups like grüum, which creates a range of razors and skincare solutions for men and women alike—and is now initiating a razor recycling program.

For those who don't feel quite confident enough to invest in an eco-friendly safety razor, grüum provides an alternative solution by asking customers to send back their razor head cartridges so that they can be recycled. In doing so, the unisex razor subscription start-up's cartridge recycling scheme is setting itself apart as the first of its kind in the UK.

Other products from grüum are made with materials like HDPE, the most commonly recycled type of plastic, glass and metal, with outer packaging made from fully recyclable cardboard.
Trend Themes
1. Razor Recycling Programs - There is an opportunity for businesses to create razor recycling programs similar to grüum's initiative, in order to meet the growing demand for sustainable and eco-friendly solutions.
2. Eco-friendly Consumer Initiatives - Businesses can tap into the consumer demand for waste-reducing initiatives, like grüum's razor recycling program, by incorporating eco-friendly practices into their product offerings.
3. Unisex Subscription Start-ups - The success of grüum's unisex razor subscription model suggests an emerging trend of start-ups catering to both men and women's grooming needs.
Industry Implications
1. Personal Care Products - The personal care products industry can explore opportunities in razor recycling programs to enhance their sustainability efforts and cater to eco-conscious consumers.
2. Subscription Services - Subscription service providers can learn from grüum and develop unisex offerings to attract a wider customer base and capitalize on the growing demand for convenience and personalization.
3. Waste Management and Recycling - The waste management and recycling industry should consider partnering with consumer product companies to establish more comprehensive recycling programs, such as grüum's initiative, and contribute to a circular economy.
