Sayonara Single-Use! Leaf Shave is Making Sustainable Shaving Easy
Because disposable razors and their replacement cartridges are made out of multiple materials, they're not recyclable outside of a few specialized programs.

Invest in a Better World with COIN
Sponsored by COIN Conventional wisdom says we should start investing as soon as possible. The younger you are when you begin, the more time you have to build interest and the more money you’ll bank. But, for many of us (at least for me) investing still feels scary. When I think of investing and investors I imagine lots of stuffed suits with overly coiffed hair, carrying briefcases and trying to convince me to put my money in some big box superstore because ‘it’s a ‘sure’ thing’.
