The LastSwab Is a Reusable Replacement for Q-Tips

While its been drilled into our heads lately that straws are bad for the environment, apparently, those Q-Tips you use take like a billion years to break down and they are hurting wildlife in the sea as well. LastSwabs are medical silicone grade tipped swabs that are designed for reuse to help prevent pollution.

This seems like a good idea, but I think it would feel pretty weird for most of us to use silicone at this point because we are so used to sticking cotton in and around our ears.  But it’s probably a good idea to get used to it so we don’t kill the planet because we have to clean our ears. For $20 you’ll get you two reusable swabs and carrying cases. They come in ten different colors and they come in a nubby version for cleaning, and a smooth version for applying makeup.

Here’s a fun fact: Over 1.5 billion cotton swabs are manufactured every single day, and a lot of those find their way into the ocean. According to LastSwab, anyway. Never seen it myself. But their video has a fake seahorse all wrapped up in cotton swabs, so you know it’s the truth. Personally, I think it was just jousting.
