WHY SWITCH TO SUSTAINABILITY?
It is said, if you close your eyes you can still hear the *gasp* when you first saw the viral NatGeo photo of a seahorse holding a used plastic bud. In case you missed it, it’s time you googled it.
Plastic stemmed cotton buds are lightweight in nature which makes them infamous for sneaking it’s way past the sewage treatment and entering the oceans. It not only destroys the marine ecosystem but also is harmful for humans as tiny plastic pieces end up in our food chain. Fishes and birds often mistake the plastic stems for food which results in physical damage, starvation or death.
IS IT A WISE CHOICE?
To stop this vicious cycle, Vimi’s Buds are ecological, making them a great replacement option. The stem is made of sustainable bamboo, which is biodegradable and happens to grow abundantly in nature. The buds are made of 100% cotton, which makes them gentle to use on skin and include in your makeup/skincare regime.
HOW TO GO ABOUT IT?
Pick a Vimi bud and use it for external purposes like, applying ointment on a wound, wiping make-up smudges, etc.
We highly suggest not to use them for internal purposes as they can lead to ear drum damage.
Do not flush it down the toilet.
GO AN EXTRA MILE TO UPCYCLE
If you ever feel crafty, before disposing the Vimi bud, cut out the cotton end and place it on your compost bin. Now with all the bamboo sticks collected overtime, you can make an earthy picture frame, or convert them into garden markers by making a little flag. Either way, they'll look cute.

Once used, you can dispose of them in your compost bin. The packaging is made of kraft paper and thus can be recycled
