I apologize if the formatting of the pictures is bad. I still haven't figured out how to properly display photos with blogger. The above pictures show my before and after pictures for the 2015 No Shave November (NSN). I've done NSN for quite a few years now, and after the 2014 NSN, I kept my beard for a long time. It had actually been so long since I regularly shaved, that I had trouble finding a good razor to shave with on October 31st. I definitely do not miss buying razors, nicking myself while shaving, and taking time to shave.
*Please note: I encourage all genders to participate in No Shave November, not just males*
There are environmental positives to not shaving. I'm not buying razor blades or razor blade heads. I'm not buying the packaging that comes with those items, which ultimately ends up in the garbage. I'm not buying cans of shaving cream, which also ends up in the garbage. Now that November is over, I will trim where and when it's needed. My trimmer won't last me forever, but this trimmer will contribute less waste compared to the amount of razor blades I would use during the lifespan of my trimmer.
I think there will come a time when I'm clean shaven again, but not in the foreseeable future. And for the immediate future? I think I may continue on with Don't Shave December :)
