THE CLAIM The handles of these Schick razors ($8/4; at Walmart) are made of recycled plastic hangers; the packaging is 100 percent post-consumer paper.
EXPERT OPINION "Converting junk into something useful is good from a sustainability standpoint," says Wilson. "It's just a bummer that the whole device can't be continually recycled." Why? The inclusion of a blade makes recycling trickyand dangerous (you'd have to remove it, which is not recommended!).
OUR VERDICT The handles aren't the pastel, cushiony, scented variety some gals might be used to, but shaving with a cleaner, greener conscience feels terrific. Bonus points for the flexible base: It allows the three blades and aloe strip in this disposable tool to glide over knees with ease.
