Sometimes it is the small things that count (like seahorses), so why not swap your cotton buds with ones made only from wood and cotton.
Packet of 100 inside a lovely little glass jar.
The glass jar is a quilted 240mL Ball (made in USA). It is usually used as a preserving container, so it seals well and lasts a long time. It is 100mm high and 70mm wide and uses the standard "Regular Mouth" preserving jar lids.
Care & Usage:
Cotton buds are supposed to be for cleaning externally. You're not supposed to insert them into your ear as you can push objects or wax further inside. If you have an ear blockage see your GP! I'm sure that most of you have been breaking the rules here but just be careful and please seek medical advice if you have an issue with your ears.
Keep the lid on tight to ensure that the cotton buds stay clean.
Materials and Environment:
Wood shaft with Cotton ends, Glass jar, Metal lid.
End of life:
Biodegradable, dispose of in you rubbish bin.
The Glass jar can be re-used and new lids can be purchased. If it is damaged and beyond use then the metal lid goes in with your metal recycling and the glass goes in with your glass recycling.
