Our oceans are full of single use plastic. “What?” We said our oceans are full of… Sounds like you need to clean your ears with our Biodegradable cotton buds!
We all have our bathroom routines, some things more glamorous than others! But some of our habits are causing unnecessary harm to the planet. One of the biggest offenders of plastic waste in our oceans is cotton buds, or ‘Q-tips’ as our American friends call them. They have been so problematic they now appear on the top 10 list of items the government has pledged to remove from sale in the near future. We feel this is one of the smallest changes that will have the biggest impact, so we’re championing these fully biodegradable cotton buds as part of our plastic free bathroom range!
It might be something you haven’t given a second thought to, and we don’t blame you. We often buy through convenience, and have only ever had the option of disposable plastic buds. That’s why we wanted to bring you a better option so you can turn your back on the old plastic buds!
Over our life-time, we might use a small mountain of these things, because nothing fixes dodgy liquid eyeliner or cleans out our ears quite like them, so why not make the change today to save any future pesky plastic sticks from ending up in landfills or in our oceans!
Each box contains 100 buds, so enough to keep you going for a long time. (Unless you still haven’t got a steady enough hand to perfect that winged liquid eyeliner look, in which case we suggest you order a few boxes…)
When used, simply throw them in your organic waste bin or on a compost heap if you have one.
A product you can feel good about too!
As if that wasn’t enough, the production of these buds is water-neutral, they’re vegan and Fairtrade, AND 10% of our profits go to a charity providing access to clean drinking water for people living in the southern hemisphere, so you have that to feel good about too!
