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've been searching for compostable Q tips for a long time. I would love to see a bulk box to reduce box packaging even further :)

Love these cotton swabs!

They perform just like the regular plastic ones, I don't find any difference in functionality but I love how these can go in the compost bin :)
