Since our inception in 2010 our focus has been to offer consumers a high quality reusable alternative to the "traditional" earplug.
Offered in sizes small, medium and large, Happy Ears are offered with a unique oval shape and short soft stem. This design was made to replicate the inner ear canal to ensure comfort and effectiveness. We didn't start our journey making Eco-Friendly Earplugs
. Our first objective was to make a great earplug for whatever the need. Our Original earplugs, which are made in Sweden, are made of an FDA approved medical grade plastic ensuring the highest quality possible. When used daily most use a single pair of Happy Ears for approximately one year. When used only occasionally for concerts, swimming or travelling one pair will last many years. This durability enhances sustainability.
In 2020 Happy Ears broke away from its Original discrete earplug to launch Happy Ears Recycled, our first eco-friendly earplug
. This earplug is made of 100% recycled plastics upcycled from our own production waste to further reduce Happy Ears environmental footprint. Yes, we make earplugs and they’re plastic, but our commitment to reduce industry waste stands in contradiction to an industry where more than 1Bil single use products are used and thrown away every year. When you know most use a single pair of Happy Ears (daily) for one year then you know if every earplug user simply made the change to Happy Ears, industry waste would be reduced by 90%+. Knowing this, we could have stopped with our Original and green-washed our way to success, but why accept any waste?
In 2021 we launched Happy Ears OP, our newest eco-friendly earplug
made of post consumer ocean plastics. Another industry first. Sourced from post consumer ocean plastics in the North Pacific and North Atlantic oceans, Happy Ears OP offer the exact same fit and functionality as our Original earplug.
While every other reusable earplug company is focused on gimmicky filters, volume controls and bling, Happy Ears is focused on sustainability
. No other earplug company is doing anything to reduce waste within our industry and for this we're really proud.
