Sustainability Story

We ask our users to make a change in their daily habits by switching from plastic razors to Leaf razors; we would never ask something of someone else that we aren't ready to do ourselves. So we feel compelled to do our part in finding incremental ways to make an impact from the company all the way through to our users. Become Climate Neutral Certified just makes sense.
