Who needs plastic thread, coated in synthetic wax, stored in a plastic dispenser, packaged in plastic?  Literally no one. 

Our eco friendly charcoal bamboo dental floss is a very straight-forward and beneficial swap to make for both the environment and your health.

It's coated in natural candelilla wax and peppermint essential oil, and infused with charcoal to help whiten teeth, absorb bad odor, and remove plaque. All natural ingredients mean it can be safely composted when you're finished with it. 

Bamboo floss is thicker and stronger than other eco-friendly options, like silk or corn, and holds up to even the tightest teeth. The subtly textured surface provides an even better flossing experience than the slippery plastic kind. 

Our floss is 30 metres in length (that's 98.4 feet for our US pals), and the glass dispenser can be reused with our refills.

Eco Facts

Dental floss as a cause for concern is something that often flies under the radar. After all, it's super thin and most of us don't use it nearly as often as we're meant to. #Guilty

Unfortunately, typical dental floss is a big single-use plastic issue that we phase out immediately. It's plastic thread, in a plastic case, sold in a cardboard and plastic package. All that plastic in your mouth is bad for your health, too.

For some reason plastic waste that originates in the washroom too often finds itself flushed down the toilet (don't do this!). That waste water ends up in the environment and...it's not pretty. Plastic thread is virtually indestructible, so any wildlife that finds itself tangled in floss is basically screwed.

Ingredients

Bamboo fibre infused with charcoal and coated with peppermint flavoured wax.

How to Use Dental Floss

The below excerpt is taken from the American Dental Association:

- Hold the floss tightly between your thumbs and forefingers.

- Guide the floss between your teeth, using a gentle rubbing motion.

- To avoid hurting your gums, never snap the floss into gum tissue.


Please remember to compost your floss after using it. The glass container is reusable for our bamboo refill floss.

Better than plastic

I feel much better using this compostable floss. There's something unpleasant about throwing away a plastic floss with my mouth detritus. I'm flossing more since buying this bamboo charcoal floss.

Love the minty flavour. Is the glass container recyclable?

Thanks for your review! Yes, the glass container is recyclable, but even better it's also refillable with our floss refills!
