These cotton buds are made with bamboo sticks instead of plastic; this makes a world of difference. The sticks are firmer, which makes them easier to use than standard cotton buds. It also means that you don't have any unnatural plastic in your ear: a nice thought. Using less plastic is of course a great idea in itself.
The bamboo used in the production of these cotton buds is 100% biodegradable and responsibly grown. Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on earth; an ideal replacement for wood or plastic, which take much longer to develop. Bamboo is naturally antibacterial, so no artificial fertiliser or pesticide is needed when growing it.
Putting a coloured cotton swab in your ear may not feel entirely healthy, but it certainly is! It is in fact natural BPA-free cotton.
Humble Brush will not revolutionise the world. But every pebble moves a mountain piece by piece. Healthcare is a basic human right that should be accessible to everyone. Dental care is usually overlooked, follow this reasoning: the right diet leads to a strong, healthy body with the ability to work. A smile improves social contacts, which in turn lead to better opportunities. Our health is a large system. If one part fails, the others cannot function either.
A company that is only focused on profit will only improve itself. We believe there is enough in the world to share. If we are fortunate enough to be born in a richer part of the world, we must not forget to care for the less fortunate. Your daily choice of products can, believe it or not, make a change. Like the pebble, a large number of people can really shift the unequal balance of living standards. In a growing world population, faced with the prospect of limited resources in the future, we must ask ourselves: can we change the way we produce and consume? The answer is yes! You have that power, by making the conscious choices. We have done our part by choosing sustainable materials, now it is up to you to choose the right products.
