Bamboo Cotton Buds
A beautiful and sustainable alternative to one of the most frequently found plastic products on beaches. These cotton buds are made from bamboo and cotton and are completely plastic-free.
The importance of bamboo cotton buds
Did you know plastic cotton buds are one of the top 10 most commonly found plastic items on beaches? This means they are a great danger to all the animals that come across them. By switching to bamboo cotton buds, you prevent a lot of animal suffering.
Even when plastic swabs end up in the trash, we cannot recycle them. In contrast, our natural alternative can simply be disposed of in the organic waste stream after use. So by switching to bamboo cotton buds, you simultaneously avoid unnecessary waste.

Did you know that from July 2021, there will be a European ban on plastic cotton buds? A long-awaited decision, and one for which the time is more than ripe. Anyone who takes action earlier by switching over to our plastic-free alternative gets an extra pack of bamboo cotton buds as a gift.
Sustainable and animal-friendly bamboo
Like many of our products, these cotton buds mainly consist of bamboo. For various reasons, bamboo is a highly sustainable material. First of all, it is the fastest-growing plant in the world. The kind we use, moso bamboo, grows up to one meter per day under optimal conditions.
The origin and cycle of a bamboo plant are also very sustainable. Bamboo does not grow from seeds but one extensive root system. Using at least five-year-old bamboo keeps the root system healthy and intact, and new branches grow constantly.
Most importantly, however, we are not a threat to pandas. Their diet consists of more than 90% bamboo. Fortunately, they prefer to eat the leaves that grow close to the ground. Therefore, their choice does not fall on moso bamboo. The leaves of this kind grow too high.
Part of a greener world
Since our collaboration with the International Association of Human Values and Eden Reforestation Projects (ERP), we plant a tree for every purchase. We do this together with ERP, a world expert in tree planting. They operate in 8 countries on three different continents and already have nearly 500 million trees on the counter.

With these bamboo cotton buds, you contribute directly to the restoration and preservation of forests. We are very grateful for that because together, we make a difference.
