Everyone is looking to do their part to help the environment. All the beauty product mainstays like cotton balls, q-tips and tissues are necessary for application but create such waste!
LastObject is here to solve this. Their mission is to reduce and eliminate single-use products. Our main focus is to identify single-use items that needlessly damage our environment. What I love about it is that everything is washable. Think how many tissues you throw out a year!
For its The Reusable Tissue Pack, simply take a tissue from the bottom, use it, and then store it on top of the marked-tissue barrier. This way, you’ll push the clean tissues down, making them ready to use and dividing them from the used. You’ll know you’re on your last tissue when the marked one appears – that means it’s cleaning time. After washing, you repack and use them all over again.
LastRound is a reusable cotton round made from 100% renewable raw materials – 70% wood fiber and 30% organic cotton, making it more sustainable than a 100% cotton option. Unlike other reusable cotton pads on the market that are cloth, LastRound feels and looks like single-use rounds used for makeup removal and applying serums. LastRound comes in a case with seven rounds and can be washed and reused over and over again.
Single-use cotton rounds made with non-organic cotton use vast amounts of chemicals, pesticides and fertilizers. According to the WWF (World Wildlife Fund), cotton production is the largest use of water among all agricultural commodities; It takes 2,640 gallons of clean drinking water to produce 1,000 regular cotton rounds.
LastSwab provides an eco-friendly alternative to the many uses of single-use q tips without the large environmental footprint.
This reusable q-tip comes in two different models for different applications. One for general q tip uses and one for more beauty oriented ones. They are both made from durable yet flexible, high quality, and non-toxic materials that are gentle on the skin and very easy to clean.
My LastSwab worked! It was very waxy after I cleaned my ears, but the materials are easily cleaned off. Sorry for the TMI!
I love this concept and I look forward to using my LastObjects when I need them.
