Plastic Free July Challenge | Day 20

Day 20 of the Plastic Free July Challenge

How bad is your disposable razor for the environment?

Billions of plastic razors and refill blade cartridges get tossed in landfills every year. Municipal recycling programs in the U.S. will not accept them because they are sharp objects made of mixed materials. (Source)

Remember the old-school safety razor your grandfather used? It’s making a comeback.

Safety razors are built to last, usually made of materials like steel or chrome. The only waste is the steel blades, and some municipalities recycle them.

Why not make this switch today?
