Plantish's reusable cotton buds that include a carrying case, are a great way to help combat waste without any inconvenience.
Research has it that 1.5 million disposable swabs are produced every day. All of these swabs require an abundant amount of resources to produce, ship and packaged all to be thrown out after one use. Sometimes they are even flushed down the toilet or sneak out of our trash systems and into the environment.
Zero Waste is no new concept, it has been around for generations manifesting in various ways in different societies. When Lydia Li, founder of Plantish, was a kid living in a small village, she witnessed how elders like her grandma lived a frugal and economically responsible life, without the use of plastic. Individuals in smaller villages turn to nature in searching for supplies to work with and lead more sustainable, low-waste lives because of it. She recalls the natural loofah sponge her grandma used for dishwashing and showering, which prompted her to research natural alternatives to the man-made loofah.
As she found that more people were also having difficulties finding zero waste products, she decided to create a platform to make plant-based products available to more and to pass down the wisdom that previous generations shared with her, and products that Plantish has experience with and stands behind.
