LUUMI SiliTips

Introducing LUUMI Sili-Tips: 100% plastic free, eco-friendly reusable nubbies – the world’s newest item on the market to replace single use cotton swabs, cotton buds and Q-tips. LUUMI Sili-Tips are multi-use, multi-function and affordable. They are made from pure platinum silicone with a stainless steel core and are easy to clean and reuse as they can go in the oven, dishwasher, boiling water, steam sanitizer or autoclave (pretty much everything EXCEPT the microwave).




Cotton swabs are a huge single use consumable that are ending up in landfills and our oceans, threatening marine life. Our awareness about the damage they are doing to our oceans was piqued when photographer Justin Hofman captured this heartbreaking photo of a seahorse clinging to a cotton swab in polluted waters near Indonesia.


In a recent report published by CNN, officials in England have stated they will be banning all plastic straws, stirrers and cotton buds starting in April 2020. They estimate that over 1.8 billion plastic-stemmed cotton buds are used each year, and that's just in England! Things need to change so we've developed the Sili-Tip!

We set out to create a mass market, easy to implement solution that is cheap, effective and 100% plastic free, and we've done it with a design that is simple and easy to make. For little more than the price of a big pack of cotton swabs, you can be part of the solution and stop wreaking havoc on our oceans. Head over the site and get your Sili-Tips today!
