LastSwab is a reusable, sustainable and sanitary alternative to cotton swabs, buds and Q-tips.
The swab ends are TPE, the rod is plastic, and the case is PLA which is made of corn and is biodegradable. 🌱
When creating a product to last for thousands of uses, durability is key. LastSwab replaces thousands of single-use cotton swabs. Even if LastSwab does end up in the ocean, it’s damage is less than 0.1% of its single-use counterparts, simply because there will be much less of them. 🐋
And a corn-based carry case.
LastObject is dedicated to creating sustainable alternatives to single-use items.
They strongly believe that the age of single use plastic as well as the “use and discard culture” have come to an end and the recent legislative measures from EU support this vision. They want LastSwab and upcoming reusable products to be part of a future where we are much more thoughtful of how we spend our resources so that maybe our grandchildren will laugh at how granddad used to throw out products he had only used once, as if there was a planet B.
They found a Canadian contract manufacturer, located in China and India who is an expert on manufacturing in China. They have been very transparent and keeping us informed about the process, deadlines and our concerns about keeping Carbon emissions down.
They have absolute faith in their contract manufacturer and they gave us the following information about the social, ecological and logistical worries that we all share: Workers working conditions, carbon emissions conditions and knowhow to make The LastSwab a customer success:
Concerning carbon emissions, a modern exhaust system is in place. This deals with the processing of gases in connection to the production of The LastSwab and is following the rigid standards of the Environmental Protection Bureau which is the Chinese agency working to reduce CO2 emissions everywhere in China.
The workers at the factory where The LastSwab is produced are receiving top notch treatment in accordance with Chinese law that is set to ensure fair worker wages, work hours (maximum 40 per week) and safety!
