Are you still using disposable cotton rounds? These reusable cotton rounds are the perfect alternative to help lessen your waste. Use a little bit of jojoba or coconut oil on one of the rounds to easily remove eye and lip makeup, and wash your face clean. (May we suggest our palm oil free activated charcoal face bar?)
To prolong their life, these reusable cotton rounds should be washed in cold water. They can just be tossed with the rest of your laundry, although a delicates bag can prolong their life even further, and left to air dry. Should you choose to tumble dry, use a gentle setting.
Packaging + End of Life
If your order is being shipped to you, these reusable cotton rounds will be completely unpackaged.
If your order is being delivered locally, they will be wrapped in reused kraft paper, which can be backyard composted.
With proper care, these cotton rounds will last you many years to come. When it does come time to retire them, they can be cut up and tossed in a backyard compost bin.
Handmade right here in Tacoma, Washington.

Reusable cotton rounds
I love these so much. They help remove dead skin like no other.
I love how much these exfoliate my skin, while enhancing my toner. I plan on purchasing these for next holiday- my sisters need these!
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 razor 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.
