Disposable razors are made of non-recyclable metal and plastic pieces. This is severely detrimental to the environment.
Disposable razors cost more
Using disposable razors costs more than using safety razors. As of 2010, the savings would be $130 or more per year if one used a safety razor.
Disposable razors are wasteful
Over a person's lifetime, using disposable razors causes one cubic foot of waste per person. This waste is not degradable and remains for future generations.
Disposable razors fill landfills
In the United States, 68 million men use disposable razors. That's 34,000,000 cubic feet being thrown into landfills every year.
Dispsable razors emit CO2
Every disposable razor emits CO2. Carbon dioxide can cause headache, dizziness, nausea and other symptoms. It can cause asphyxiation at higher levels. When it replaces high concentrations of oxygen in the blood, it can be hazardous to your life and health.
