About Us

The Cotton Bud Project seeks to engage local concerns over the current environmental issue of plastic cotton bud stems in marine litter. We use scientific evidence and research best practice to establish a wider dialogue and how best to influence positive environmental change at national and international levels.   The project was established by Fidra, an environmental charity based in East Lothian, Scotland.


Fidra is a Scottish registered charity and SCIO no.SCO43895
