The End of Single Use
Who They Are
It’s no secret: even at their best, single-use items can put a huge strain on the environment. Resources have to be harvested, products have to be crafted, and in the middle of all that, there’s often a whole lot of CO2-producing shipping—and that’s not even mentioning what happens to the products when you’re done using them! The most frustrating part of it all is that for a lot of single-use products, it can feel like there’s no better option. But now there is—LastObject.
Since their Kickstarter launch (where they raised over $1.1 million from 30,000+ backers!), LastObject has been on a mission to create environmentally-friendly and design-forward alternatives to all the single-use items that plague our daily lives. Their campaign against single-use started with LastSwab, a reusable and durable alternative to cotton swabs, but they’re not stopping there. Their goal is to find the most negatively impactful items and create well-designed and durable versions to help push the world in a better direction—and we’re here for it!
