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.
