Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: The Reusuable Cotton Swab

April 26, 2019

This is the Kickstarter campaign for patent-pending LastSwabs, medical silicone grade tipped non-cotton swabs designed for reuse to help prevent ocean pollution. $20 will get you two swabs (plus carrying cases) in your choice of ten different colors (including the carrying cases) and two styles of swab - traditional or makeup. Did you know over 1.5 billion cotton swabs are manufactured every day, and a lot of those find their way into the ocean? That's what LastSwab says! Come on, we've all seen that heartbreaking photo of the seahorse with its tail wrapped around a swab. Now, if rinsing/wiping your earwax out of a reusable swab is just too much for you and you insist on disposable ones, at least use the all paper models. And, if we all commit to doing our part, we can all live happily knowing we're completely and utterly destroying the planet just a little bit slower now.

Keep going for a couple more shots and their Kickstarter video, and make sure to update your will to pass the swab down to your favorite child so it doesn't end up in an ocean.

    Good for ear cleaning and a mid-day cocaine bump!

    I give this thing a year before if is found up the nose of a sea turtle, then a few weeks later it will be banned in California.

    I know, right? Nowhere in America is trash dumped into the ocean, yet we are the ones having all these conveniences taken away. First plastic bags, then straws, now I see places not giving napkins unless you ask. THE RETAIL INDUSTRY IS PRETENDING TO BE ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS TO MAKE MORE PROFITS.

    The worst part is watching those sea turtles getting those straws pulled out of their nose on YouTube...

    When it took me a few weeks of hard work to gather up all those turtles and shove those straws up their noses, they totally freaken wasted my time! Way to go, greeny asses!

    You can already buy a product just like this in most stores. The product name is Clinere and they come in a pack of 10.

  • biggs33

    Wow, it even has a scoop end. I have been missing out all my life...

  • MustacheHam

    A washcloth suffices for all those tiny holes, nooks, and grannies.

  • Bling Nye

    Gettin' aaaall up in dem grannies.

  • MustacheHam

    lmao that typo. Sorry, I meant "crannies".

  • WhiteEagle2

    Or don't use Q-tips because they're bad for your ears.

  • Douchy McDouche

    Also toilet paper is bad for anus and environment. Use finger for everything. Why do you think we have so many?!!

  • GeneralDisorder

    How am I supposed to swab the chambers of my .22 revolver?

  • WhiteEagle2

    With your nipples of course.
