Using less single-use plastic products has become more and more necessary. Earlier this year the European Parliament has voted to ban single-use plastic cutlery, cotton buds, straws and stirrers as part of a sweeping law against plastic waste that despoils beaches and pollutes oceans. The law will come into force by 2021 in all EU member states.
This is very good news. Plastic is a very big issue, and this is the start of a big change in the products we consume.
The time has come, to find eco-friendly alternatives to plastic cotton buds. Luckily there are a lot of new brands adapting to the upcoming law. This time I want to show you the cotton buds from the brand ‘Loofy’s’.
The cotton buds of the Dutch brand Loofy’s are made of bamboo with soft cotton tops. This makes the cotton bud 100% biodegradable. The buds, as well as the packaging, are completely plastic-free. The packaging material consists of paper and cardboard from FSC approved wood. Besides, only bio-ink is used for printing on the packages.
You can use the cotton buds to clean your ears or fix your make-up. Bamboo buds are an easy swap towards a zero waste / less waste lifestyle.
