Planet KIND has partnered with TerraCycle® to become the world’s first national razor recycling program. TerraCycle helps keep hard-to-recycle blades and razors from ending up in landfills. Through this partnership, we are making an effort to help recycle the estimated 2 billion razors thrown away every year. Our Planet KIND razor handles are durable and reusable, but if you want to dispose of them for any reason, TerraCycle can help with that, too.
How Does It Work?
Get started by signing up with TerraCycle. There you can receive a tracking code to recycle from home or find a local recycling drop-off. Through our partnership with TerraCycle, we will be accepting ALL blades and razors (Planet KIND products or not ) to be recycled.
Start recycling your blades and razors with TerraCycle.
Instead of throwing used blades and razors away, collect them at home or request a public bin for your gym, office, or college.
