A sustainable alternative to the cotton swabs, cotton buds, and Q-tips!
Finally, very much usable every day “thing” re-invented. I only hope they will fulfill our expectations with a really good quality swab. I’m backing this one 🙂 I wanna see how this will feel. We’ll see..
The tips of LastSwab also have the resilience to be cleaned thoroughly, enabling long-term use.
LastSwab comes in several colors, so you can pick the one that fits you best. Standard LastSwab colors to the left and Make-up colors to the right:
The different colors make it easy for you to organize your swabs at home or on the travel so they don’t get mixed up between owners!
Did you know that 1.5 billion cotton swabs are produced every single day? And the damage is evident: in the UK, there are 9 cotton swabs for every 100 feet of beach. Let’s make single-use cotton swabs a thing of the past!
To create LastSwab, they tested dozens of prototypes – we wanted to get it just right, said one of the creators.
Two innovative designs feature a soft-feel tip made of medical silicone. It is delicate enough to be suitable for sensitive body parts, and so precise that it’ll become a make-up essential – told us Isabel, one of the founders.
Paper, wood, and hemp cotton swabs are bad too. The CO2 emissions from the production and transport of these single-use cotton swabs can be avoided with LastSwab.
Even the case for LastSwab is biodegradable, and the packaging it comes in is made of eco-friendly cardboard. The real game changer is that the swab is designed to last for thousands of uses – and we really hope the one you buy from us will be the LAST Swab – said one of the founders.
LastSwab comes with a carry case so it’s convenient to store and take with you on the go. Cool right?
We have been through hundreds of iterations in order to find the right feel and look for LastSwab – and we’re pretty sure we’ve nailed it – said one of the founders.
The Swab is made up of a stiff, compact nylon core with soft medical silicone on each end, and is both aesthetically pleasant and functional.
Change your habits for the good of the planet in a fuss-free way. Own a LastSwab, and
CROSS cotton swabs off your shopping list forever, and do your bit for the environment. Easy.
