With a strong culture for origami, here comes the first paper razor—100% plastic free.
Japanese brand Kai has long been in the trade of disposable razors. This year it has unveiled the first razor that can be flat-packed (better for shipping) and made almost entirely from a relatively water-resistant grade of paper (similar to that of milk cartons).
“Rather than simply replacing plastic with paper, we designed the handle to be just as easy to hold and as sharp as a plastic razor. We adopted paper for the handle and metal for the blade and head. It is made of 98% paper and 2% paint. Only the blade part, including the entire head, is made of metal.”—Kai group
It’s great to see huge companies that sell large quantities innovating their products!
