1/2 Q-tip / Cotton swabs

1/2 Q-tip
1/2 Q-tip

Cotton swab is a disposable product because people throw it a way after they use it. If people throw one cotton swab away after they use only one side of it, it will become a waste and will bring about the burden and harm to the global environment. Therefore, we should take into consideration the design more seriously. We increase the crease design in the middle part of the cotton swab. When people use only one side of it, they can break it and keep the clean side of it to reduce half of the waste, thereby reducing half of the burden to the earth.
