every year again Europe uses

39.6 billion plastic cotton swabs

Every year, over 1.8 billion cotton swabs are used and thrown away in the United Kingdom alone. The cosmetic industry in Europe uses enough swabs to line the entire globe every 5 days. To Seas At Risk and The Plastic Soup Foundation, "Over time, plastic falls apart into small fragments, transforming all the water around us into a big soup full of microplastics. These particles enter the marine food chain because plankton and other small animals mistake them for food." Although the size of straws is small, their impact is huge.

plastic free swabs

100% biodegradable

Gluten-free. Our swabs are made from the bottom of cereal plants. Gluten are found in the seeds of cereal grains. As we only use the stalk of the plant with no seeds, our swabs do not contain gluten so are save to use.

Pure. We are producing natural and ecological wheat cotton buds made of natural wheat stems wrapped in the purest and softest cotton.

100% biodegradable

Sterilized and still 100% biodegradable. Wheat Swabs are fully grown in the nature. After harvesting the hay straws, they are cut and cleaned. After sterilizing and adding the natural cotton the straws are usable as cotton swap. In the whole process are no chemicals added.

Nutrients for our soil. As our Wheat Swabs are 100% natural, they are compostable. They are made to end up in the environment because they serve as nutrients for our soil.

Honest. Our Wheat Swabs are coming from farmers and producers with a BSCI certificate. This means that the working environments and wages are honest and according to international standards.
