Bamboo Cotton Swabs – Pack of 200

Be it to take your make-up off, or to clean the wax from your ears, cotton swabs are an important tool in most of our bathrooms. But did you know that all of the cotton swabs you’ve ever used are probably stuck in a landfill and still exist today? The plastic stick of the cotton swabs is normally not easily recyclable. It’s reduced size make it one of the worst plastic polluters. We all remember that picture of the seahorse attached to one, right?

Our bamboo cotton swabs are made from all-natural materials. The handle is made from 100% natural Moso Bamboo, which is a species that grows natively in China, and has the capacity to grow very tall, in a very short time. The cotton we use for our swabs is made from certified organic cotton. So you can be sure that by using them, you’re not contributing to polluting this planet anymore, and you can safely compost them!


• 200 cotton swabs of 7.5 cm (2.95”)
• Packaged in a recycled carton box.

How are they made?

Our Bamboo Cotton Swabs are made from 100% natural Moso Bamboo, which is a species of bamboo that is native to China. Moso Bamboo has the benefit of growing very fast in a very short time. Each stalk can measure up to 30 meters in just a couple of years.  The cotton we use in our swabs is 100% Organic cotton.

The process of making bamboo cotton swabs is hardly handmade, it is a very elaborate technical process that requires quite a lot of machines. First, the stalk of the bamboo is cut into slabs, which is then turned into small toothpick-like sticks. Each stalk can make thousands of pieces. Once those are ready, another machine starts to spin the cotton on each tip of the stick until it reaches the desired thickness, this makes them all as similar and possible and makes them strong and comfortable to use.

Care Instructions

Using Your Bamboo Cotton Swabs

Cotton Swabs aren’t a mysterious machine, so we trust you know how to use them. Just remember only to clean the outside part of your ear, and never stick the whole cotton swab all the way in, as this can damage your internal ear. Just try to be careful when you use them please!
