ABOUT US

The problem

Swabs are believed to be one of the most polluting single-use plastics, and there are apparently no alternatives!
1.5 billion cotton swabs are produced and disposed of every day - after just one use! Most of the time, these
cotton buds end up in the oceans and severely damage marine life.

The mission
The founders of LastSwab have a mission to end the pollution caused by single-use plastic in the oceans and landfills.

LastSwab is the first reusable and long-lasting alternative to single-use swabs.

Waste

THE END OF Single Use

Every year, trillions of disposable plastic products are consumed and thrown away - often ending up on beaches and oceans, damaging marine life. By purchasing LastSwab, you are helping to reduce harmful waste that affects our environment.

LastSwab, above all, is an opportunity to transform our routines for the benefit of the planet, while simplifying and organizing our lives. All that's left to do is decide which version of LastSwab will add value, which could end up being both !
