These bamboo and cotton buds are the perfect replacement for the conventional version, usually made with a plastic stem. This plastic stem ensures the buds hang around for hundreds of years, and their small size has made them one of the worst and most damaging pollutants in our oceans, easily slipping through filters and lodging themselves in all kind of places.
Bamboo is a fantastically sustainable plant, growing 4 feet in one day without the need of fertilisers or pesticides while absorbing 5x more carbon dioxide and producing 35% more oxygen than other similar trees. It also self-regenerates when it is cut down, so doesn't require the need for replanting like trees do.
