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!

Cotton swabs: they're often used for 5 seconds, but with plastic handles, can stick around on our planet for 500+ years! Unlike plastic swabs, these Biodegradable Cotton Swabs from The Humble Co. are made from biodegradable and compostable materials that easily break down without harming our planet. Made from 100% sustaRead Moreinably grown and harvested bamboo paired with a cotton tip colored with natural coloring, these eco-friendly bamboo cotton swabs are extremely useful for everything from personal care to craft projects, and comes in recycled content and recyclable packaging (no plastic!) Plus, this product supports the Humble Smile Foundation, supporting oral health initiatives for those in need worldwide!

    Saving the turtles

    The only thing I don’t like is it’s a little harder to get nail polish off than with a regular Q-tip, but saving the turtles, the ocean and the planet are worth the extra effort

    I love that these are bio degradable and package great. There’s no reason cotton swabs should be packaged in plastic. I will continue to purchase these.

    These are great! They are sturdy and love that they are eco friendly. I don’t use them every day so the 100 pack will last me a while.

    Great Swabs but Package needs improvement

    Howie

    The swabs are very nice and consistent but they are difficult to remove. The package opens at their cotton tips making it difficult to remove each swab stick from the tight package

    I cannot give up qtips and I have try other alternativeside but like these the best. I love that they come in different colors but wish there was a little more cotton on the ends.

    I only regret not getting white, purchased the pink ones

    Kubby (verified owner)

    These are cute and work really well. Will repurchase them, but will buy in a different color. I can’t really tell when I clean my ears or other areas what is being picked up due to the color. It is also a little tougher than normal q-tips.

    Great alternative, a little pricey

    Dan (verified owner)

    These are definitely high-quality swabs. I had switched from the standard cotton swabs to a plastic cleanable reusable alternative, but it was rough on the ears. This was a good middle ground between unsustainable disposables and plastic discomfort. My one complaint is that it’s kind of expensive for only 100 swabs. The box arrived and I was a little disappointed by how much I was getting for my money.

    Functional and cute. I think next time I will stick to white though. It’s hard to tell when your done because with the color you can’t see how clean the q tip comes out.

  11. abigailhoffer

    Mostly awesome

    abigailhoffer (verified owner)

    These cotton swabs are absolutely fine and there is very little difference between these and the ones in the average drug store (besides the biodegradable aspect of course). My only issue is that the bamboo stick is a little fragile and I broke two of them just by pulling them out of the packaging to put them in a different container. I don’t mind that they’re fragile and to me it’s totally worth it for a biodegradable product, but just something to mention!

    good cotton tip

    Weili (verified owner)

    Works well. My only issue is that the stick breaks during use with the way I use it to clean my ear.

  13. aaacarrasco10

    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 🙂
