I am currently running out of my q-tips and want to find them in non-plastic packaging. Seems like i am out of luck! I have looked around everywhere. Does anyone have any ideas or even what company to order online?
Oh, assuming you wanted to use them to clean your ears. I sometimes forget there are many other uses for Q tips.
You could try this neat trick I saw a manicurist do once and which I've adapted - make your own! Take an orange stick (or the "back end" of a fine wooden artist's brush, which I use for eye shadow, so it's in my makeup drawer) and wrap/swirl it with a piece of a cotton ball. When finished, throw away the cotton part and re-use the stick. Cotton is available plastic free at the drugstore, and the orange stick/artist's brush at any crafts store.
Julsie, that's potentially exciting. I just emailed Valerie from Greenfeet to see if the box contains any plastic. The organic Swisspers swabs come in a cardboard box, but it is shrink-wrapped in plastic.
Sadly, Valerie says they come shrink-wrapped in plastic. :-( Oh well.
Drat! I already ordered mine.
Cool! I'll have to see if I can talk the hubby into giving up his Q-tip habit.
