, has come up with a method to “shave” down landfills. Schick Xtreme3 has teamed up with Make magazine to launch Project ReMAKE, an online contest that asked the public to share their most creative ways to reuse everyday objects and materials during Earth Month. The contest, which was open to submission through May 14, was designed to support the new Schick Xtreme3 Eco razor, which has a handle made of 100% recycled plastic and a package made of recycled paper.
To help launch the contest, Schick enlisted actress Amy Smart and HGTV’s Carter Oosterhouse, who created a series of how-to videos on Facebook that guide people through sample projects they can easily make at home. One grand prize winner, chosen by popular vote, will win a trip to the Maker Faire in New York City, and a sweepstakes winner will receive a Nissan Leaf.
