🌱 What is LastSwab made of?
The swab ends are made of the rubber-like material TPE, and the rod is made of plastic reinforced with glass fiber. The case comes in two versions and is either made of the plant-based material PLA, or of recycled ocean-bound plastic.
🌱 Why not just use paper and cotton ones?
Paper and cotton swabs impact the environment because they are single-use. The average person goes through hundreds of cotton swabs each year. These cotton swabs get produced, warehoused, shipped, purchased, used, and discarded. During this process, the use of raw materials and the CO2 created are harmful to the environment. These processes become unnecessary when you commit to using reusable products like LastSwab.
🌱 Is LastSwab sanitary?
LastSwabs are easily cleaned with water and a little soap. You can also use a disinfectant like rubbing alcohol to sanitize it.

🌏 How many single use swabs does LastSwab need to replace to be better for the environment?
The question is complicated to answer precisely as the carbon footprint of 1000 single-use swabs depends on the materials used: organic cotton or not, wood sticks or paper, the distance between production and consumption, waste management options at the location they are discarded etc.
