What is LastSwab?
So, as I have mentioned on my blog, YouTube and Instagram, I want to learn more about eco friendly, sustainability and fair trade brands. There is no need for people these days to be shopping fast fashion and using single use plastics.
I did some research and reached out to a couple of brands and one of them was LastObject with their item LastSwab.
LastSwab is a cotton swab alternative. These are eco friendly, sustainable and an easy & affordable switch to make. This little item costs only $12 each but will replace around 1,000 single use cotton swabs.
LastSwabs come in lots of different colours to choose from which I think is great.
How do you use and wash LastSwab?
There are 2 different types of swabs available. One of them is for general use and is a bobble texture on both sides. And the other one is a beauty swab for make up and this one is smooth and one side comes to a point. This one is to help clear up any make up mistakes or use with mascara and eyeliner for example.
These cotton swab alternatives are reusable and super easy to clean. You simply wash them with warm water and soap.
What is LastSwab made from?
I took this text directly from their website so that I don't share any misinformation, I want to make sure that you know exactly what you're buying.
"The swab ends are TPE, the rod is plastic, and the case is PLA which is made of corn and is biodegradable. When creating a product to last for thousands of uses, durability is key. LastSwab replaces thousands of single-use cotton swabs. Even if LastSwab does end up in the ocean, it’s damage is less than 0.1% of its single-use counterparts, simply because there will be much less of them. "
Why should I buy a LastSwab?
You should buy a LastSwab if you use single use cotton swabs for any needs, either cleaning your ears, for make up application or for anything else. These are affordable, lightweight, eco friendly, sustainable, great for travel & minimalists and generally a great item to invest in. You can use these at least 1,000 times which means you are fighting against single use products.
