Eco Shop - Go Bamboo Cotton Buds

Carrying on our mission to reduce plastic consumption especially single use, this issue we want to highlight the harmful effects of cotton buds on our planet. Plastic cotton buds are the number one item of plastic, sewage-related debris found on our beaches and rivers, according to the last year’s Marine Conservation Society’s Great British Beach Clean. The amount of cotton bud sticks found on UK beaches has doubled since 2012 from an average of 11 to 24 for every 100 metres of beach cleaned. We have recently starting stocking bamboo cotton buds which are 100% biodegradable and made from sustainable bamboo and natural cotton tips and are BPA free.
