More Silliness: Plastic Disposable Razors

We are now aware - or should be aware - that anything that is "plastic and disposable" should be avoided whenever possible. Plastic is a petroleum product and isn't bio-degradable, as horrifically evidenced by the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

So why do people use these silly 3, 4 and 5-bladed disposable plastic razors when the humble double-edge safety razor works fine, with it's disposable metal blades. A good safety razor will last multiple lifetimes (I use my grandfather's) and - as long as moderate care is taken - will give a close shave with no worries of being cut.


K-cups should be outlawed, too

I gotta say the same thing about Keurig K-cups, those single-cup coffee brewing stations that are taking over North America. Each pre-measured packet of coffee grounds is packaged in its own, single use, disposable plastic container. WTF! I can kinda understand the use of these in hotels - though the foil-packaged drip pouches are likely more environmentally safe. But for home use, they are just plain nuts in a world teetering on the brink of climate change and ocean death.
