Swapping from plastic to bamboo cotton swabs is a great way to reduce plastic pollution, but what about carbon footprint? Bamboo is great, but it can't offset the entire supply chain from crop to your bathroom.
That's where these silicone ear swabs come in. They're durable and can save up to 1000 single-use cotton swabs. There are downsides - whilst silicone is very easy to recycle, it's not yet widely supported in UK recycling plants (a local TerraCycle point might be an option).
It also is a type of plastic, no matter what you read elsewhere. The key differences between normal plastic and silicone however are that silicone is more (not completely) inert and in the natural environment it shouldn't leach chemicals like plastic. It's also incredibly incredibly resistant to temperature change and doesn't break down into micro-plastic - a huge advantage.
Because there are pro's and con's to both options, we currently stock both. We continue to look for better alternatives but until then, either choice helps save the planet.
