Dear Conscious Readers,
We're at week 6 of the Zero Waste Switch Challenge, the final countdown has started!
Also, I'm writing you from Geneva, Switzerland, where I'm spending the month of May! By the way, if you don't already, follow me on Snapchat for some zero waste traveling tips and totally random things (chloelepeltier).
For those of you who just joined us. WELCOME! You'll find a recap of the last few weeks' challenges at the end of this email.
This week, let's get close & personal.
ZWswitchallenge #5 - Switch to a reusable cup/a safety razor
Ladies & gentlemen, now that we know each other a little better, I thought we could talk about more intimate subjects.
Ladies, there are various alternatives to disposables when it comes to your cycle. I personally chose the reusable cup some two years ago because it's sanitary, comfortable, reliable and convenient. I never gave it another thought.
Gentlemen, tell the ladies in your lives, your GF, your BF or even your BFFL.
Gentlemen, how many blades do you think a razor can have? When is the marketing race gonna stop? Maybe one is enough. We've had electric razors at home for as long as I can remember so we haven't given safety razors a try yet. But if we ever needed a razor, that's what we would get.
Ladies, same thing here, tell the men in your lives, and why not get one for yourself too?
That's it for today. You know the deal. feel free to share pictures of your weekly challenge with us on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook,etc.). And don't forget to use #ZWswitchallenge so we can all follow each other's progress.
See you next week!
