Bamboo is one of the earth’s fastest-growing natural fibers. It’s used here to create a durable, multi-purpose cleaning tool without the plastic waste.
Every purchase of the Zero Waste Cotton Swabs funds the removal of 10 pieces of plastic from the ocean.
- 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
- Pack of 200 cotton-tipped applicators in recycled Kraft paper.
- Double tip cotton swab and bamboo shaft.
- Disposal options include: remove cotton and upcycle the bamboo sticks, put them in the compost, or use as kindling for your fire.
- Made in the UK.
If you find Qtips too bendy (and are old enough to miss the wood stick Qtips), these are for you. They will break if you push too hard though, so don't do that!
I have a Chihuahua with a small mouth and dental disease and the vet recommended using q-tips to help clean off the tartar. Yikes thought plastic-free me until I remembered seeing these on Free the Ocean. Now I can use q-tips again guilt-free.
Overall this was a good buy, however, a minor annoyance my husband experienced while using one of the buds was that it broke while he was cleaning his ear. Argh that's not good :( However he will continue using them as he prefers them over that godawful Q-Tip brand!
These q-tips are amazing! Strong and do not bend when using. Only down fall is they are a little expensive for how many you get.
I found these cotton swabs to be just as good as the non recyclable ones sold in drugstores. Loved the packaging as well. Definitely recommend.
