Realizing these suckers don't last long, I stopped using expensive disposables years ago and switched over to lower priced razors that I wouldn't feel guilty about tossing more frequently.
Disposable razors make a LOT of waste.
Making an effort to be environmentally responsible, I'm happy to report that I've found recyclable disposables (Preserve Triple Razors and Schick Xtreme3 Eco) as welcome alternatives.
I was shocked that I couldn't find ANY other options for recyclable disposables!
We've only got one earth, people.

In this post, Oprah.com also advises avoiding folliculitis (those dastardly little red bumps) by tossing disposables after a few uses.
This interesting site- all about hair removal suggests that the disposables we abuse are really only designed for one or two uses.
Geezoo! Think of all that trash!
I'm so thankful to have found better options.

And HEYO, all other razor companies!
How about making some moves out there to start using recyclable materials for your products?
A landfill loaded with used razors is decidedly NOT picture perfect. So let's get on that, 'kay? Quick.

Here's to smooth skin and planet Earth!
