Recently, headed to Peru for two weeks, I once again faced the dilemmas I often face when traveling. “How am I going to pay for this?” and “Why do I bring so much stuff with me”? But those always work out.
What actually had me wondering was “Which razor do I bring?” A few years ago a friend over here got me into wet-shaving. But while traveling to South America it’s difficult to bring traditional shaving gear – because you don’t know where you’ll be at any given point in time when bussing, staying at missions, etc., or you don’t know what the accommodations will be like when you get where you’re going.
So I always end up buying plastic razors, the ones that I’ll eventually throw away, and which will take 500 years to decompose, and which will contribute more plastic into an already over plasticked world and which will be around when my distant relatives have long forgotten I ever existed, except to maybe vaguely recall that there was a priest in the family at some point in time back way back when and to perhaps think, “I wonder if any of those plastic razors they’ve found near old Abita might have belonged to him?” I may not be a rabid environmentalist, but I do care for the place.
Which leads us to the Bulldog Original Bamboo Razor, which I found over at the Walgreen’s for about $8.00. It’s completely awesome! In every way.

As they put it:
What sets the Original Bamboo Razor apart is the focus on lowering its environmental impact. From the natural bamboo handle, to the un-chromed metal components, to the fully recycled stock that the razor’s packaging is made from.
There’s a tiny piece of plastic on the unused razor cartridges which is easily recycled. It’s even more easily just thrown away but if you do at least you’re not throwing away an entire pack of plastic razors, one at a time over a period of weeks or months.
Smooth. Clean. Sophisticated.
Worth checking out. And if you’re in the advertising business, they could probably use a new ad routine.
Great piece to have in the travel kit, and for regular use. Disclaimer: I’m not making anything off of this ad for them, and they have no clue I exist other than perhaps some tech at some point noticing an odd link to the site via some priest’s website. All of that being said…
