What's the deal with disposable razors

Hey Kids!

Americans use 2.6 billion disposable razors every year. The waste from the total volume amounts to filling up a football field about 50 yards deep.

Considering that most of these razors are plastic, if a couple of ounces of petroleum went into the manufacturing and transport of each razor, upwards of 250,000 barrels of oil get consumed every year due to their use.
