I'd like to know how he calculated the carbon footprint of water use VS an electric? I think I must use all of 1 cup for building lather and  rinsing my razor and washing my face and brush  3 more cups. Unless he is on a solar panel grid that electric demands a infrastructure of hydroelectric dams and aqueducts that aren't exactly ecofriendly. I'd love to time his showers, betting the term 'SeaShower' is unknown.
I believe his interest in a superior shave, saving money and reducing plastic waste sincere. What I dislike is the notion wetshaving;
like buying a chicom stainless steel whisky flask, zippo lighter and aviator sunglasses will make  every probationary adult an incarnation of Steve McQueen or Cary Grant.

You can save a lot of money by traditional wetshaving, provided you don't succumb to any of the ADs. You can also save money on airline tickets by walking everywhere, it just takes a little longer  Tongue

I started because it was cheap but stayed for the comfort and then expanded due to the aesthetics.

I got a chuckle from the poster in the comments who pontificates about the superiority of an electric over DE.

Came back to wet shaving about a year ago from an Electric and never looked back. I get great shaves with my Merkur Futur and a $.07 Crystal blade. I also have a new batch Mongoose and this razor is state of the art coupled with a Feather Pro blade and you really will get a great shave. I also got into using a straight razor and that really gives an exceptional shave. An art to learn and do it right but there is nothing like it for quality. Also, the experience of the prep etc is extremely relaxing.

Thanks for sharing this article.  Enjoyable for a good chuckle on 5 weeks lifespan for a disposable.

Yeah, me too. I've never had one last me that long. They all started tugging a bit more after a week or so. In its defense, if I were prepping my beard then how I do now, the blades would have lasted a bit longer.
