Quality Guaranteed. Eco-Style Cotton Wool Buds.
The industry has had cotton wool in its ears for a long time. Cotton wool buds? They are made of synthetic material! And that applies both to the shaft and the bud itself. Increasingly, though, there are alternatives offered with cotton wool buds and environmentally friendly materials used for the shaft. The problem is that the shafts in eco-friendly versions are usually paper-based and when used they bend annoyingly. And, very often, the packaging is less sustainable than the product itself.
Hydrophil cotton buds, on the other hand, are fully biodegradable: they have sturdy bamboo shafts, soft cotton wool buds and are packaged in recycled cardboard. After use, they can easily be disposed of in the organic waste or compost.

Water-friendly products are those whose components of natural origin have been cultivated without artificial irrigation, and which, when composted, leave no harmful residues in the groundwater.
