Plastic cotton swabs.

It’s not uncommon for many people to flush their cotton swabs down the toilet when they’re finished with them. Unfortunately, this fast tracks these plastic bad boys right into our environment because they are small and often escape waste management systems.

Plastic cotton swabs may weather, but because they are made of plastic, they won’t break down fully. Their small, slim shape makes them easily indigestible by marine animals, which can cause injury or death.

Stick: Bamboo
Tip: Cotton
  1. Grab the cotton swab with two fingers at one end of the swab.
  2. Insert the cotton swab into your ear.
  3. *Be careful not to push in too far or make any sudden movements.
  4. Gently wipe inside your ear.
  5. Discard cotton swab in your green waste bin.

*Using cotton swabs should never hurt, if you feel pain stop immediately.

Bamboo cotton swabs are shipped in a biodegradable box. This packaging can be thrown into your recycle bin.

Typical Life Span: 3 months (per box of 100)*

After using your bamboo cotton swabs, simply toss them into your compost bin.

*Life span will vary based on frequency of use, storage conditions, etc.

I can clean my ears again. I haven’t used a swab since I found out they’re made of plastic (when did they stop using paper???). SO happy to have found these!

Great zero waste substitute

Trying to switch my household to a more eco friendly home and these bamboo cotton swabs make it pretty easy!! I don't notice a difference between these and the generic cotton swabs. Overall, a great product that I feel good about using.

Good stuff

The cotton isn’t as puffy as normal swabs, which deterred me a little, I thought they’d be firm and hard, but I feel no difference between the two. Love that they’re compostable, especially after I heard that 2 BILLION cotton swabs get thrown out everyday. Overall, they’re a good product

Sturdily built

No complaints here, and I get to toss into compost tumbler, guilt-free (now if I could just get better at composting XD ). I'd love to be able to see these come in packages ofat least 200+, as I do go through these quite quickly
