Recyclable Bamboo Swabs

Recyclable Bamboo Swabs

2 total reviews

Pack of 100

These swabs are made by combining two plants, bamboo and cotton, making them 100% biodegradable and compostable.

Plastic swabs are not recyclable and take centuries to biodegrade. And the enormous quantity of them that have wound up in our oceans has led to them being banned in several countries.

Bamboo is not only much stronger (its tensile strength is on par with steel and its compressive strength is similar to concrete), it also biodegrades in just a few months whether you compost them in a garden or toss them in the trash. And since bamboo is the fastest growing plant on Earth, it is an abundantly renewable and sustainable resource. Bamboo can grow 1 inch every 40 minutes.

Furthermore, the carbon that bamboo sequesters during growth results in a carbon-negative lifecycle, even after accounting for harvesting and production. Furthermore, the energy used in production of cotton has been reduced by 38% in recent decades.

Promoting sustainable industries is a win-win. We can have the luxuries we want without the side effect of trashing our communities or wildlife habitats. And it can be as easy as switching to bamboo swabs.
