Organic Q-Tips for some Cleaner, Less Bleachy Ears


Ever since I found out about the dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico which can be directly attributed to pesticide runoff from cotton crops, I’ve been searching for ways to make my life less of a place for bleached, non-organic cotton to hang out. So far I’ve crossed off socks, towels, bedding, and other cotton items from my list. But this morning, I realized I’d left one essential item off; Q-Tips.

Organic Essentials

At $4.49, they aren’t that far away in price from their non-organic counterparts. Buy some other things from the store and the shipping won’t be too killer. There’s a lot there to choose from!
