Bamboo

As a member of the grass family, bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth. It requires no irrigation, pesticides or fertilizers to grow, and can be harvested within 3-5 years, as compared to approximately 30+ years for traditional hardwoods. Bamboo is extremely adaptable and produces more oxygen per acre than large tree species, while using a fraction of the water to grow. Its durable and lightweight qualities make bamboo a great alternative for hard wood products!

      Hey Abbie – you totally can! Similar to composting used tissues, these cotton swabs will break down just fine with a little ear wax 🙂

    4 out of 5 Very surprised with this product

    aaacarrasco10 (verified owner)

    The color was more of a pink (I ordered purple) but that does not really matter to me. They are soft in the ear and get the job done. The stick is a bit fragile and I have broken about three while using them but that might be user error. I’m definitely buying jus these from now on. I just wish they would sell in bigger quantities 🙂
