Did you know?
If everyone in the U.S. flosses their teeth according to ADA recommendations, every year our empty containers alone would fill a landfill the size of a football field that’s 6 stories high—just for the empty floss dispensers! —
Thanks to Beth Terry Author of Plastic Free we have found an alternative that is plastic-free and zero waste: Natural dental floss that comes in its own refillable glass jar!
It is made from 100% natural mulberry silk and is coated in a natural plant-based candelilla wax making it completely biodegradable. The pink-colored container is made from glass with a metal cap that is removable so that you can refill the bottle over and over. You can use the same bottle for the rest of your life if you take care of it - just think about how many plastic floss containers will be avoided.
It's a key element of an eco-friendly oral hygiene routine and goes great with any of our our Brush with Bamboo tooth brushes!
This product comes with a glass bottle and two 33-yard / 30 m rolls of natural dental silk. The extra dental silk is packaged in a biodegradable PLA bioplastic bag that is biodegradable in industrial composting facilities or in a home composter within 6 - 12 months. Also available in bottle colors of gray or blue.
