Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and REJUVENATE
Global warming affects all of us.
The production of billions of disposable
razors brings with it the cost of increased
CO2 emissions. Woah. There goes another
Razor Gator is doing its part to make your
razors last longer so you don't have to
throw them away as quickly. Less razors
used means less razors made and reduce CO2
emissions. Do your part, Use Razor Gator----your
country and Razor Gator will love you, and
so will your skin.

What is RCRA?
In 1976 Congress passed a law that requires careful
disposal of household, municipal, and commercial
and industrial waste: the Resource Conservation
and Recovery Act (RCRA). Its goals are to:
Conserve energy and natural resources
Reduce the amount of waste generated
Ensure that wastes are managed to protect human
health and the environment.
If people and companies don't follow the regulations
they can be fined or jailed.
RCRA regulations apply to three basic kinds of
waste management: municipal solid waste landfills;
hazardous waste generators and treatment, storage,
and disposal facilities; and underground tanks
storing hazardous materials.
What is municipal solid waste?
Municipal solid waste (MSW) is mostly nonhazardous
garbage from businesses and homes. Many communities
face the problem of more and more garbage being
thrown away, with less and less space to dispose
of it. Did you know every year in the United States
we dispose of...
1 billion foil-lined fruit juice boxes
2 billion used batteries
25 billion styrofoam cups
700,000 old TVs
1.6 billion disposable pens
700,000 junked cars
2 billion disposable razors
15 million tons of food
16 billion disposable diapers
