Whether you use them to apply and remove your makeup or clean your ears, you can't deny the utility of a cotton swab. Most are made of plastic and end up in landfills, with no prospect of biodegrading in our foreseeable lifetime.
These wonderful Compostable Cotton Swabs solve this single-use plastic problem because they are 100% compostable, which means they will become part of the earth disintegrating into natural elements leaving no toxicity in the soil. This typically occurs in about 90 days.
One of The Worst Culprits in Plastic Pollution
You may not know this, but the bathroom is home to one of the most harmful single-use products that is found in our landfills, in our oceans, and on our beaches . . . the plastic cotton swab!
Plastic-cotton-swabs are only used once and then trashed or flushed down the toilet. This means they end up in landfill or worse - our rivers and oceans, where they will stay FOREVER! Cotton swabs are the epitome of single use plastic.
What adds insult to injury is that plastic-cotton-swabs can not be recycled. These nasty mofos are made with the assistance of non-renewable oil in the manufacturing process.
National Geographic estimates that a whopping 91% of plastic isn't recycled on a global scale. Single-use plastic takes up to 500 years to decompose. Around 10% of cotton buds end up flushed down the toilet, traveling down into our waterways and oceans and destroying marine life. As such, the ban comes as a welcome necessity and will soon be rolled out around the UK, a country where people use 1.8 billion cotton buds every year.
Cotton swabs are so detrimental to marine life that some nations like England and Scotland have banned them completely.
These Compostable Cotton Swabs are made from sustainably grown bamboo and cotton. They’re 100% biodegradable.
Recent studies have indicated that many bamboo products are not only carbon neutral, but carbon negative! Bamboo produces 30% more oxygen than your regular run-of-the-mill tree.
The bamboo stem is lightweight and durable.
