But, they opted for a cost cutting and money-making exercise - they took away the razors that would last us a lifetime and told us that we should pay less for something up front that would only last 10 years. And then 5. And now a few shaves with the 'true' disposable. If a company with factory can produce 10,000 items in disposable plastic for the same cost as 10 in life-lasting steel, I'd say we're certainly talking "disposable". The trend isn't limited to razors of course.
    You know - you are right! It is both. Kind of the perfect storm. Thanks .
