Recent figures provided by the European Environment Agency (EEA) suggest that plastic cotton swabs represent around 4% of the waste registered on the European beaches. Bamboo Family Cotton swabs are 100% biodegradable.
The bristles are made from BPA free Nylon and thus this toothbrush is not 100% plastic free nor 100% biodegradable. For those seeking a completely plastic-free brush, the only functional option at the moment is animal hair bristle. Before composting, remove the bristles and place in your recycle bin.
For the sake of our planet. One study published earlier this year estimated that as many as 8.3 billion plastic straws pollute the world's beaches. On top of that, Bamboo straws are better than the plastic ones when it comes to your health. When you use plastic straws for hot beverages like tea, cocoa, and coffee, toxins can leach from the plastic and enter your body, often disrupting hormones and causing other negative side effects.
Bamboo straws are safe when compared to glass and stainless steel, which are other favorite materials for reusable drinking straws. However, unlike glass and metal, bamboo straws do have a limited lifespan. The good news is that when your bamboo straw is worn out, you can toss it in the compost pile instead of the garbage. There, it will break down naturally, instead of creating more mass in a landfill.
We want to minimize our environmental impact from start to finish. That's why we don’t use protection bubble plastic and due to this sometimes the paper box arrives slightly bent. We apologize in advance if this happens but we believe that you share our thoughts about not using protection bubble plastic.
