Growing a more sustainable way to shave cross-pollinates to packaging as well.

We design the best plastic-free razors in the world. Our goal is to make shaving sustainably more accessible than it’s ever been by making the shave as easy as a modern razor. It’s important to think beyond the razor, though.


Packaging is often an overlooked part of consumption, but the impact is wide ranging. Shaving products products tens of thousands of tons of plastic-packaging waste each year.


At Leaf Shave, not only are our products plastic-free, but we ship 100% plastic free as well. When you first unbox your new shave, you can be excited about the razors and not have to worry about the packaging.

This is precisely what you won'tfind us doing.

It’s silly how much plastic is used to package modern razors. We’re a lot of things at Leaf, but silly about our packaging is not one of them.

When you unbox your new razor or kit, we promise you’ll never see that thick plastic shell guarding the razor like it’s Fort Knox. You WILL see a paperboard sleeve that slides off to reveal a paper-wrapped hinged box. The hinged box is made from post-consumer-recycled chipboard.


Sometimes, the paperboard cushion that holds the razors inside the box tears in transit. This is a constant battle for us, making the packaging protective enough, while not being overpackaged. Thank you for your understanding if you ever receive a package whose paper has torn holding the weighty razor.


If you want to hold onto the razor box for a while, as a free travel case, that’s a great second life for it too. When you’re ready for an upgrade, check out our travel cases.

Economy of size. Economy of materials.

Leaf blades come wrapped in paper, with a quantity of 50 blades per paperboard box. One 50-pack of Leaf blades sits in the same footprint as a *single* plastic cartridge. That’s what we mean by economy of size, packaging, shipping, storing and shaving with Leaf blades is incredibly economical when compared with how it’s done today.

We ship out every order ourselves.

This allows us to ensure even our shipping packaging is plastic-free.

We use kraft shipping boxes and kraft mailer pouches. Even our tape is plastic-free. We source what’s called ‘gummed paper tape’ which uses water-activated adhesive to create seals when closing up our shipping boxes. The tape itself is 100% paper based, and the glue is a natural latex adhesive. Both our kraft shipping boxes and paper tape can be recycled curbside.

Not only do we package our blades responsibly, we’ll recycle your used blades for you too. This is how you close the loop on a zero-waste shave. Ship used blades back to us at:
