Say goodbye to plastic cotton swabs once and for all. These bamboo cotton swabs are an easy swap for plastic q-tips, but instead of living on forever in a landfill (or worse, our oceans) they're 100% compostable. Made with bamboo and organic cotton, these zero waste cotton swabs will look beautiful perched on your bathroom sink, too.
Each box includes 200 swabs.
Made with sustainable bamboo and organic cotton.
Packaging + End of Life
Each cardboard box is made with recycled materials and can be recycled with curbside paper recycling. The cotton swabs themselves are 100% home compostable.
Responsibly made in China and sourced from a small business in Las Vegas, Nevada.
We ship ugly boxes
Our commitment to sustainability doesn't end when you press that checkout button.
We pack all of our orders in reused boxes and envelopes, with reused paper packaging, post-consumer recycled paper labels, and even paper tape.
You may not get an IG-worthy unboxing, but you will get the most sustainable packaging we can possibly find.
Oh and did we mention our shipping is always carbon negative?
Let's go to the real winner in my eyes. Honestly, I could have purchased this exact product many other places, but the packaging A Drop in the Ocean uses to ship will have me coming back time and time gain.
My first purchase from them was some floss a while ago and it arrived in a reused tea box with a hand written note that was written on scrap paper. I was blown away.
I had never seen a company who claimed to be sustainable ACTUALLY prove to be sustainable through and through. The fact that every piece of the packaging was reused and minimal will have me come back over and over again. If I can purchase it here, I will purchase it here.
Bamboo cotton swabs
I love them simply because they are just as absorbing as the generic cotton swabs made with plastics and I feel better knowing they come from a source that is renewable.
These work just like normal cotton swabs, they are a little more breakable if you're adding pressure but overall once you get used to that they work great
