These Bamboo Cotton Buds are 100% biodegradable, meaning you will not be causing any plastic waste by using them. From the packaging, which is completely plastic-free and fully recyclable, to the sticks which are made from bamboo, a very sustainable crop.
Cotton buds, cotton swabs, q-tips, whatever you call them, are ever so convenient, so much so that they get used almost every day. But unfortunately, the usual plastic cotton bud on the market cannot be recycled, and are often flushed down the toilet ending up in waterways, they find themselves in the bellies of aquatic animals and birds, and even on the tails of seahorses. In England, it is estimated we use 1.8 billion plastic-stemmed cotton buds a year, a shocking statistic.
