Did you know that we get through around 1.8 BILLION plastic cotton buds each year in the UK alone? These cannot be recycled, they’re suitable only for landfill, but many also end up in the ocean having been flushed down the toilet and passing through sewage treatment works due to their size. Plastic cotton buds are one of the leading forms of plastic waste that is polluting the ocean.
Making the switch to bamboo cotton buds is a great way to cut down on plastic pollution. They are 100% compostable, giving a great eco-friendly way to dispose of them. Bamboo cotton buds are much stronger than the paper alternatives and won’t bend or soak up water.
