Did you know one of the WORST kinds of plastic pollution comes from….plastic swabs?
That’s right: those brands like Q-Tips have a lot to answer for. Those tiny sticks of plastic are easily ingested by fish and other animals, and are so tiny, they sometimes don’t even get screened out by water filtration systems!
In short, they’re a disaster in your bathroom cabinet. But they’re not the only ones!
Cotton rounds, used to remove makeup, are just as bad. They’re often made from a polyester cotton blend, which means not only do they not break down easily in landfill, but they also take loads of pesticides to create, as cotton is one of the most water intensive and pesticide intensive crops to grow. According to the WWF (World Wildlife Fund), cotton production is the largest use of water among all agricultural commodities; It takes 2,640 gallons of clean drinking water to produce 1,000 regular cotton rounds.
The good news is: there’s a solution!
LastObject makes eco-friendly products for your beauty routine. These include LastRound, launching on September 1, 2020.
These reusable cotton rounds are made from 100% renewable raw materials, making it more sustainable than a 100% cotton option. Unlike other reusable cotton pads on the market that are cloth, LastRound feels and looks like single-use rounds used for makeup removal and applying serums.
This comes from the brand that created the world’s first reusable cotton swab. Yep, LastSwab. The founders are on a mission to end people’s reliance on single-use by creating durable, sustainable products to replace disposable daily-use items.
They package their products in re-usable, natural silicon containers, too.
LastObject would like to offer TWO lucky winners the chance to win 2 LastSwabs (one beauty and one basic) and one LastTissue, at a value of $48.
