Eating plant-based is the biggest step you can take toward climate change, and doing better by our planet. But this year, let’s take it a step further and start to reduce our carbon footprint by making conscious choices in our everyday purchases as well.
I have been trying to do better by mother earth, and in doing so have begun to swap some of my bathroom toiletries for more eco-friendly versions.
The Humble Co. is based in Sweden, and prides themselves on being “over certified, because it matters.” All of their products are cruelty-free and certified vegan. They created their products with a mission to help those in need, and to sustain our planet, because in their words: "there is no planet b." They have created a number of eco-friendly hyenine products, from floss picks to toothpaste tablets, and even reusable face masks to help reduce the spread.
Additionally, The Humble Co donates necessary oral health care products and education through their foundation: Humble Smile Foundation. Humble Smile is a series of outreach projects, offering oral hygiene supplies and resources to the most vulnerable around the globe. The Humble Smile Foundation is: "a group of dedicated dental professionals and academics, develops models whereby volunteer teams work together with local school staff to promote specific behaviour-based preventive oral health initiatives that include dietary interventions, monitored toothbrushing and clinical procedures."
The Humble Co's cotton swabs make a statement with their sustainable bamboo sticks, and naturally dyed pink (or white, blue, or even black) cotton tips. Used for detailed cleaning, routine beauty and health care, I'd say it's about time we stepped up our game and used a version of Q-tips that are better for our environment. I like to keep mine accessible on my counter-top in a transparent glass jar, as I get to see the pretty pink fluff anytime I enter the bathroom (plus I can easily grab one whenever need be). I can attest that these cotton swabs work just as well as the high-dollar brand, but the cuteness and sustainability factors really were my major selling points.
Aside from cleaning my ears, I mostly bought these to apply lip balm. Q tips I've had in the past would always flake off bits of cotton, but not these! They're firm enough that they don't do that, so they're perfect for my needs. On top of that they're just so cute. They're clearly not purple though, they are definitely more pink as you can presume from the images.
I absolutely love this swab. I put them in a cute crystal see through case. I get questions all the time about them. I use them for everything especially to dab at eye ducts due to allergies. Definitely don't want to use my fingers. I love the fact that they don't bend so they can take a licking when I am using them for my mixed media projects. I love that they are good for the environment. And I no longer get remits of cotton in my eye. Thank you!!!!
These things work very well! It’s probably sad I’m writing a review for cotton swabs at the age of 30. But hey. It’s the little things in life. They work well and I love the options of color. Nifty looking and are sturdy! Work well
I had bought a different product before this and it wasn’t Happy with the quality at all. I like that they are soft and sturdy both at the same time. The packaging is neat and divided into few boxes instead of all in one.
The swabs are very sturdy and the cotton stays tightly wound. I love that they are compostable. In terms of sustainability, last swab or something similar would probably be better but this is a step in the right direction!
