The ‘Switch the Stick’ campaign is all about swapping the little plastic sticks in cotton buds with paper alternatives. So what’s the problem? Well, it’s all that plastic that ends up in the sea and ingested by the creatures that live in it. ‘Switch the Stick’ will prevent over 320 tons of single-use plastic being produced annually. Plastic that wouldn’t have been recycled and could have been flushed into our rivers and seas. That’s a huge pile of plastic pollution prevention!
The new paper and cotton cotton buds are already on the supermarket shelves, so please buy these from now on!
