Peace Swab / Cotton Swab

Peace Swab
Peace Swab

Cotton swabs are our daily supplies, some people like to throw the cotton swabs into the toilet after used, and those swabs will flow into the ocean. The cotton swabs will transform into plastic particles not only flow on the beach, but also get into humans’ body. This behavior is harmful to marine lives and the environment.

Peace Swab -- a re-designed cotton swab, with the reusable stick and replaceable cotton pieces, Peace Swab can be friendlier to the ocean and more convenient to use for people.
