Company description

LastObject is dedicated to creating sustainable alternatives to single-use items.

We strongly believe that the age of single-use plastic as well as the “use and discard culture” have come to an end and the recent legislative measures from EU support this vision. We want LastSwab and upcoming reusable products to be part of a future where we are much more thoughtful of how we spend our resources so that maybe our grandchildren will laugh at how granddad used to throw out products he had only used once as if there was a planet B.

We seem to have hit a nerve among many consumers as more than 30,000 backers said goodbye to the single-use cotton swabs and bought the LastSwab during our initial crowdfunding on Kickstarter and Indiegogo.

In fact, many pre-pledged their purchase even before the launch date of the campaign. This initial success shows the potential of transforming traditional single-use products into reusable ones, and the LastSwab is just the tip of the spear for opening people’s ears to this radical change of how we view products.

The goal is to have our products available all over the world in mainstream retail outlets such as Walmart and Tesco in order to secure a significant impact.

LastObject currently has two products: LastSwab and LastTissue, which launched on Kickstarter February 2020.

One LastTissue pack contains six reusable handkerchiefs made from 100% organic cotton, fitted into a 100% silicone, dishwasher safe carrying case.

Every LastTissue tissue replaces a single-use tissue and saves 2 liters of water. Each pack protects the planet from more than 3,000 single-use tissues and their plastic packaging. The project was funded in 30 minutes.

The solution

LastSwab helps people stop the never ending single-use cycle of buying Q-tip, cotton buds or cotton swabs. We have at the present moment sold LastSwab's to 17.000 people from around the world, together they have bought a total of 50.000 LastSwabs and by doing so they have saved the environment for 50.000.000 cotton swab (Every LastSwab can be used 1000+ times).

Impact description

Huge. In the UK single use cotton swab damage is evident: For every 100 feet of beach there are 9 cotton swabs. Now we can make single-use cotton swabs a thing of the past! the EU have banned single-use plastic cotton buds by 2021, but they should ban cotton swabs as well, because they need to be produced, warehoused, shipped, used and discarded, and by doing this huge amounts of CO2 is produced.
