Introducting: the lastobject
Founded in 2018 in Denmark by designer Isabel Aagaard, the lastobject have been flying ever since.
Self-described as an ‘eco-fighter and power-mom’, Agaard was frustrated by all of the single use products on the market, she decided there must be a better way. By bringing design innovative solutions to wasteful habits, Agaard has found ways to create products that do everything you need them to do, look brilliant, AND make a lasting positive impact. They launched their first product the Last Swab thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter and Indiegogo and over 30,000 backers.
Agaard is clear that all products they create and produce must adhere to their core values that;
- Any product produced must have at least 10x real environmental impact vs the traditional single use products they replace.
- They create Premium products with high usability and excellent design – ”good enough” is not good enough.
- They are end-to-end sustainable across their entire value chain, from cradle to grave.
So what materials go into the Lastobject products?
Each product is made from materials like compostable wood fibres, cardboard and organic cotton. The plastic cases and covers are made from recycled ocean-bound plastic and where a more flexible material is needed over plastic, food grade silicone is used. This durable material is more ocean-friendly than plastic, but unlike plastic, when silicone is incinerated, silicone reverts back into its harmless ingredients: amorphous silica, carbon dioxide, and water vapor.
The Lasttissue contains perfectly sized cotton tissues inside a silicone case, perfect for carrying when out and about.
The last round use recycled plastics, wood fibre and cotton to replace your cotton pads.
The LastObject’s newest addition to their product line are their very clever Laundry sheets.
These super thin, compact sheets eliminate plastic waste, unnecessary transport of water and the release of chemicals into the environment. As an added bonus they are super space savers - perfect for those looking to save space and the environment.
