While disposable razors may not be an eco-friendly choice, if you do use them, there is one thing you can do to help lengthen the life of the blades. After each shave, simply rinse and dip the blades in a little isopropyl rubbing alcohol. This does two things: It helps dry out the razor blades, which means they won't rust and will stay sharp, and it helps sanitize the blades, which means you won't be introducing acne-inducing bacteria onto your face with each shave. You can also dip nail clippers and tweezers in alcohol to keep them clean.
