Hundreds of thousands of cotton buds are flushed away every week, despite water company pleas not to do so. Plastic cotton bud sticks are able to slip through sewage treatment plants washing out into the seas. Once in the ocean they can take 500 years to break down.
These 100% biodegradable bamboo cotton swabs by Hydrophil, are a much more sustainable choice.
They are also water neutral, also 10% of Hydrophil's profits go to a charity providing safe drinking water to some of the poorest people in the southern hemisphere!
100 swabs per pack.
