Following a successful crowdfunding campaign that raised $1.3 MM on a reusable Q-tip called LastSwab, LastObject is back with their second product, LastTissue. LastTissue launches on Kickstarter today and aims to bring the handkerchief back to mainstream culture. One LastTissue pack contains six reusable handkerchiefs made from 100% organic cotton, fitted into a 100% silicone, dishwasher safe carrying case.
Tissues and single-use items are destroying the planet. Every day more than 41 million trees are cut down around the world. Deforestation leads to direct loss of wildlife habitat and removes the effect the trees have of cleaning our carbon emissions to breathable oxygen. LastTissue aims to help alleviate this global crisis.
“We designed LastTissue because the paper and pulp industry is the third-largest industrial emitter of global warming gasses. The climate emergency we are in is a sign that humans must stop and think differently about single-use items. The big problem with single-use is people’s habits, which is why we are creating mainstream daily-use products that are reusable” commented LastObject co-founder, Isabel Aagaard.
Every LastTissue tissue replaces a single-use tissue and saves 2 liters of water. With one LastTissue pack, you will save the planet from more than 3,100 single-use tissues as well as their plastic packaging.
Buy three packs of LastTissue for $39 USD now on the Kickstarter campaign ending March 12th.
