    I would save about2 lbs of food waste a week by composting and would have material to fertilize my gardens.    Just need to purchase a composting bin due to the various forms of wildlife in my area.

    There was really no need to buy a bulk bag of "mostly plastic" disposable razors. Steel razors worked just fine for my Dad. I should have "ditched the convenience" factor years ago and invested in a sustainable steel razor.
