Schick adds eco-friendly razor to Xtreme3 line

SHELTON, Conn. — Schick is touting a disposable razor that features a handle made of 100% recycled plastic, in addition to 100% post-consumer paper in its packaging.

Available for both men and women, Schick Xtreme3 Eco, the company said, will save more than 103,000 lb.s of virgin plastic material and 15,500 lbs. of virgin paper from going into landfills each year through the use of the recyclable materials.

“We know consumers are doing their part to live more sustainably, and we wanted to provide a simple way for them to do so with their shave,” said Suma Nagaraj, brand manager for Schick Xtreme3. “At Schick, we’re taking proactive steps to minimize the impact of our products and manufacturing processes on the environment, and we’re continually looking for ways to improve—creating this product was the next step in our journey.”

Schick Xtreme3 Eco is available at Walmart and will be distributed nationwide in April.
