Single-use plastic razors are without any purpose.
Why should you frequently throw away the entire razor, when only the blade is dull?
Answer: So you spend more money than necessary for a new one.
Alternative: Safety Razor
If you iron over a square of cotton with bees wax, than you get the environmentally friendly version of plastic wrap which you can reuse as you like! 🙂
On YouTube there are a lot of tutorials which also show different methods (iron // oven):

Alternative to bees wax you can use carnauba wax which is not made of animal products.
There’s a tutorial here (german):
“FLUSTIX is a seal which certifies plastic-free products. Only if both packaging and product are tested free of plastic will our independent license-partner award the FLUSTIX seal.
We want to reduce plastic waste and encourage industries to replace plastic with alternatives. By marking plastic-free products with the FLUSTIX seal, every customer can make a conscious and sustainable buying-decision. […]
When a manufacturer wants to be certified by FLUSTIX, its produce undergoes a strict testing process. Products, meaning content and packaging, are being tested for plastic contamination by FLUSTIX. In a second step, the product is sent to the independent, unbiased laboratory Wessling GmbH which tests the product for its exact plastic content.
Every product on the German, Austrian and Swiss markets can be tested.”
