Green Christmas gift idea, a Solar Razor

Sunday, December 9th, 2007

solar Razor
Sol Shaver Solar Razor UK£ 29.99 or 60.89 U.S. dollars from Jill’s Eco Store

One idea for a green gift this christmas is the Sol Shaver Solar Razor, a solar powered electric shaver. It’s not as green as re-gifting last years presents but it does have an appeal to a special man in your life who likes to keep his gadgets green as possible. It’s especially good for the guy who travels or hikes a lot or maybe just frequently has to contend with the five o’clock shadow. You just put it in the sun for charging and then tuck and later you’ll have a cordless shaver whenever you need it, without being tethered to the plug.
