Get that plastic out of your mouth!

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

A better floss for healthier teeth and gums

Bamboo floss is the strongest of all 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. 

Charcoal infused 

Our bamboo floss is infused with activated charcoal which naturally helps whiten teeth, absorb bad odor, and remove plaque.

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.

How is bamboo dental floss eco friendly?

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

What is bamboo dental floss made from?

  • Bamboo fibre
  • Activated charcoal
  • Peppermint essential oil
  • Candelilla wax

How to use bamboo dental floss

The below excerpt is taken from the American Dental Association:

  1. Hold the floss tightly between your thumbs and forefingers.
  2. Guide the floss between your teeth, using a gentle rubbing motion.
  3. 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.

The dirty truth about common plastic dental floss

Common dental floss is made from non-recyclable and non-biodegradable plastic, which will last on our Earth for hundreds of years. And the flavoured wax coating is typically made with perfluorinated chemicals, or PFCs.

Floss that ends up in our water systems can become a strangle hazard or swallowed by aquatic life, eventually leading to organ damage and death.

Dental floss can also get tangled up in corals causing irreversible damage to marine ecosystems.

Based on 5 reviews

This stuff is the best. Compostable, but strong enough for super tight teeth. Julie is also very honest and flexible with shipping costs.

Best eco floss

So cute and the first eco-friendly floss I’ve tried that doesn’t break super easily.

Jeremy C
Strong as Advertised!

Like the description says, this is much stronger than silk and corn options I've tried. Perfect for tight teeth. Made the switch and not looking back.

Dale H
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.

dental 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!
