“We live in a disposable society. It's easier to throw things out than to fix them. We even give it a name - we call it recycling.” Neil LaBute
McDonalds, 7/11 Convenience stores, the drive through at Starbucks, the Bic Disposable Razor, along with paper plates and cups make recycling a need, not a want.
The list of items that now need recycled grows daily, we sometimes need to get off the merry go round, and buy the solution.
The one time purchase, with a lifetime warranty product. Products that do not require refills, or additional purchases, the one time, never need the company again purchase.
Personally, I buy the Bic single edge razor blade; it is my inventors mind at work, analyzing the double edge blades. When I shave with them, they clog up faster than single edge blades, which means, I have not choice, I must disposable them, Bic sells more, and I lose money. While, I can re-use the Bic single blade disposable for up to a week, until the black no longer is sharp.
The truth is, I only shave once per week, maybe twice, shaving is not a need.
Avoid travel gear that needs refilled, travel will always take you away from the refills, that is the nature of travel.
