Preserve Razor Triple: Recycled and Recyclable
If you shave with a cartridge razor, consider switching to the Preserve Razor Triple as a nod to the 'green' movement. Recycline makes the handles from 100% recycled plastics, including at least 65% recycled Stonyfield Farm yogurt cups, and provides a postage-paid label to mail in your worn-out or broken handle to be recycled. The recycled handles get a second life as plastic lumber for park benches, decks, etc.
"An innovation in shaving, the Preserve® Triple Razor provides an eco-friendly shaving option that doesn't sacrifice performance. With our titanium-coated blades and lubrication strip for comfort, Preserve's Triple Razor delivers a clean, close shave for both men and women. Available in four vivid colors, the ergonomic handle exhibits contours and gripping regions that enhance performance and control."
"Gripping regions that enhance performance..." Hmmm... I can't vouch for that, but I did shave with the Preserve Triple last week, and for a cartridge razor, I thought it was good. It was comfortable and the triple blade gave me a close shave, and knowing that I could send it back to be recycled again was a plus for me.
I used Cremo Shave Cream to shave with it, and I was impressed by the richness of the cream enough to want to keep using it. It's super concentrated, so I was able to shave my whole face (3 days of stubble) with just a dab the size of a quarter. It also has a great manly scent - I highly recommend it.

I switched recently from Gillette Mach 3 Turbo to the Preserve Triple...however so far my experience has not been positive.
It is very tough to clean between the blades. And after a few uses it just doesn't work anymore. No shave.
This might be from using a knife to try and get in between the blades to clean and slightly bending the blades, I'm not sure.
If anyone can help me figure out what's wrong that would be much appreciated. I want to use them but certainly don't want to go through a blade a week (or more)!
