Let's all swap the swab! It's high time to ditch the single-use plastic stems on conventional cotton swabs and swap 'em out for biodegradable ones. 

Our 100 pack of eco friendly swabs come in 3 colour options, because we like to keep it festive up in here.

    You can sleep soundly knowing your swabs are now:

    • Biodegradable, made of bamboo and natural cotton
    • Vegan & Cruelty free
    • Plastic free

    Cotton swabs are also useful for makeup application, nail polish removal, and cleaning the gunk out of your keyboard #guilty

      Eco Facts

      Ear buds with plastic stems are single-use plastic waste. What's more, too many people flush these down the toilet (never do this!), and many communities overflow their sewage into waterways. This leaves untold numbers of plastic stems in our rivers and oceans, breaking down into microplastic and finding their way into the bellies of fish, birds, and sea creatures.

      Many conventional companies now offer paper stemmed ear buds, however bamboo is still considered to be the most environmentally friendly option. Why?

      - Bamboo is grown without the use of pesticides or insecticides - Bamboo forests absorb 35% more CO2 than a regular mixed forest.

      -Bamboo can grow up to a meter a day making it an amazing renewable resource.

      How to Use Cotton Swabs

      Use our biodegradable cotton swabs exactly as you would with plastic swabs.

      Cotton swabs are also useful for makeup application, nail polish removal, and cleaning electronics.

      Please keep out of reach of children.

      Please note: Eco Shark does not recommend using cotton swabs to clean your ears, because Otolaryngologists do not recommend using cotton swabs to clean your ears. We trust the experts! Putting cotton swabs in your ear canal has the risk of puncturing your ear drum or compacting your natural ear wax.

      Colourful compostable swabs made my day!

      Just received these and they are exactly what I was looking for. So appreciate that I can put them in the compost and the bright colours look great in the clear container in my bathroom :). I also like that the soft heads stay together really well when I use them. I actually prefer them to my old plastic brand!

      I’ve been searching for a compostable option for cotton swabs and these are perfect. I love the option of colour.
