LastSwab is a reusable and sustainable alternative to single-use cotton swabs. It feels like a lovely ear massage and makes your ears feel totally clean. To top it off, they are also latex-free!

LastObject has two manufacturers: one is located in China and the other is located in Denmark. They only work with non-EU manufacturers that have SMETA (ethical audit) certificates.

Paper and cotton swabs impact the environment because they are single-use. The average person goes through hundreds of cotton swabs each year. These cotton swabs get produced, warehoused, shipped, purchased, used, and discarded. During this process, the use of raw materials and the CO2 created are harmful to the environment. These processes become unnecessary when you commit to using reusable products like LastSwab. It only takes 36 uses (so about 5 weeks) for LastSwab to become a better option than single use swabs in terms of carbon footprint.

*Does not come with drawers

Replacement For

How to Use

You can generally use a LastSwab as you would use a single-use swab, but keep in mind that LastSwab is not heat resistant and you cannot use it with solvents such as acetone or non-acetone nail polish remover.

LastObject is partnered with Pact Collective to help you recycle their hard-to-recycle products, like their silicone case and mix material swab rod! Here's how:

  1. Check if you have a Pact Collective facility near you, and turn in your hard-to-recycle products there. If you don't, visit this mail-back-site to print a shipping label.
  2. Place 5 to 10 hard-to-recycle objects in an envelope or small box. Place your label on the package. The objects can be from any beauty brand, not just LastObject.
  3. Drop off your package. LastObject will cover the recycling fee, but you will need to cover the $5 shipping fee if you are shipping.
