I recently switched to a safety razor because
- It's cheaper in the long run, even if I change blades more often
- disposables are a recycling nightmare - (metal bonded to plastic)
Of course eventually blades will dull and not be usable anymore, so I'd like to consider how to recycle them. Unfortunately all i'm finding is "put them in a commercially available sharps container and throw them away" which doesn't seem very green at all. I wouldn't mind mailing them in a sharps container if there is a mail in program -- I can't imagine I'd need to send a package more than once a year.
