8 million metric tons of plastic enters our oceans each year (Ocean Conservancy). Imagine dumping a full garbage truck of plastic into the ocean every minute of every day, for a whole year! It's estimated that there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans soon. That's why it's important that we switch sustainable alternatives, vote with our dollar! 


More than 120 BILLION units of packaging is produced by the global cosmetics industry every year, and most of it isn't recyclable. The average moisturizer jar takes nearly 1,000 years to decompose! The beauty industry makes over $500 BILLION a year and is one of the leading contributors to plastic pollution due to single-use plastic packaging. That's why it's important that we support eco-conscious small businesses who provide plastic-free/reusable, vegan and natural makeup solutions!

Great 1:1 replacement for swabs made from less earth-friendly materials

These are still disposable but they're much more similar to traditional swabs than, say, the reusable LastSwab. I appreciated that not only are they packaged in a little snug paperboard box, they came shipped to us in a very small cardboard box with no wasteful packing material. Highly recommend these for anyone looking to reduce their impact but not ready to use a reusable swab yet, or for whom a reusable swab is not suitable for whatever reason - these are absorbent which is perhaps more useful for some situations.


Happy with all my products

A Small, Easy Swap!

Ear swabs are used on an everyday basis so for me, I wanted to find a sustainable alternative to the traditional plastic options. This was an easy choice and I'm really enjoying them as my alternative. One minor flaw is that the middle of the swabs do break easily but only when applying a lot of force. Other than that, these are amazing!


I enjoyed your products and will buy again.
