Our conscious effort to reduce the number of one-time plastics has never been greater. Programmes like David Attenborough’s Blue Planet demonstrating the impact of plastic waste on our planet alongside the continuing depletion of our resources through unsustainable manufacturing demonstrates the clear importance of environmentally friendly products. One of the positives to take from the last year or two is the growing consumer demand for green products.

An industry that has taken a shift toward green sustainable product manufacturing has been men’s health products. From switching up the way men shave, to sexual health and grooming supplies, the male health market has been flooded with sustainable options.

We look at some of our favourites available.

Bulldog – Original Bamboo Razor

Bulldog have always prided themselves on putting their customers’ viewpoint first and ensuring they operate a business that consumers could be proud of.

There Original Bamboo Razor is no different. The focus of this razor is to lower its environmental impact by reducing and eliminating materials that are hard to recycle and break down. The natural bamboo handle and the un-chromed metal components along with the full recycling packaging make it a real winner in our books. Bulldog doesn’t use ingredients from animal sources and is certified by Cruelty-Free International and their products are suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Bedford Beard Company

The Bedford Beard Company was set up by Tom and his partner Caitlin with the aim of delivering a small family run business whose aim is to help men keep their grooming regime natural and eco-friendly.

If you have a burly beard, moustache or you just require new grooming products their hand made in-house made products could be the answer you’ve been searching for. They pride themselves on using the finest ingredients so whether it is a bamboo handle beard comb, a beard balm or wax they’ll have a product to suit you.

Brothers we stand

Well, we just love this next brand. Brothers we stand brings their own unique twist to the sustainability marketplace with their upcycled products. Using genuine decommissioned fire-hose and lined with waste parachute silk their washbags, holdalls and more don’t only look great but are a mark of excellent craftsmanship.

Strong enough to tackle the toughest of conditions and previously deployed in active duty for up to 25 years their ‘fire hose’ bags are something you can’t miss out on. At least you’ll have peace of mind your leaky bottles won’t spill all over your luggage with these wash pieces.

Fair Squared Condoms

In 2005 OXFAM’s campaign ‘Make poverty history’ made the founders of Fair Squared think long and hard about what they could do as an organisation. Five years later in 2010 Fair Squared products were then sold via OXFAM and Amnesty International. It was then in the UK that a few students picked up the idea of sustainable products and made Fair Squared products more widely available.

Among those products were their condom range. The natural latex is also suitable for vegans as they eliminate the Casein protein from cow’s milk. Not stopping there, Fair Squared also donate more than 10,000 condoms per year for sexual education in schools around North Rhine-Westphalia to educate children about the importance of sexual health.
