LastSwab - Alternative to disposable Cotton BudsLastSwab
LastSwab is an alternative to the everyday cotton swab. Made from TPE, PP, and stored in a bio-based carrying case, one LastSwab is meant to replace 1000 single-use cotton swabs.
Swab on-the-go, with the corn-based carry case.
LastSwab can be cleaned by hand using soap and water.
What is LastSwab made of?
The swab ends are made of the rubber like material TPE, and the rod is made of plastic reinforced with glass fiber. The case comes in two versions and is either made of the plant based material PLA, or of recycled ocean bound plastic collected by Indonesian fishermen in collaboration with the organisation: https://www.reseaproject.com/.
Why not just use paper and cotton ones?
Paper and cotton swabs impact the environment because they are single-use. The average person goes through hundreds of cotton swabs each year. These cotton swabs get produced, warehoused, shipped, purchased, used, and discarded. During this process, the use of raw materials and the CO2 created are harmful to the environment. These processes become unnecessary when you commit to using reusable products like LastSwab.
Is LastSwab sanitary?
LastSwabs are easily cleaned with water and a little soap. You can also use a disinfectant like rubbing alcohol to sanitize it.
