WHY LAST OBJECT
Founded in Denmark by three product designers, brother sister Nicolas and Isabel Aagaard and Kåre Frandsen, who want to revolutionize how we view products by making traditional single-use products into sustainable, durable, well-designed and reusable ones. LastSwab was created to help end the single-use plastic pollution in our oceans and landfills “We believe in actually changing the premise of products - by making long lasting reusable products to replace disposable ones. We strongly believe that the age of single-use plastic as well as the “use and discard culture" have come to an end”
After investigating many single-use items and before launching LastSwab, it became clear that eliminating single-use cotton swabs would have the biggest impact. It’s believed that swabs are one of the biggest single-use plastic pollutants without a solution. Every day 1.5 billion cotton swabs are produced and discarded after one use often ending up in the oceans harming marine life. Even paper, wood, and hemp cotton swabs aren't ideal. The CO2 emissions from the production and transport of these single-use cotton swabs are enormous for just being used once.
