Dental Picks are a handy little invention that provide a lot of convenience, particularly for care givers or people with hand tremors.  

Our Eco Floss Pick handles are made with PLA instead of plastic, therefore using renewable and biodegradable cornstarch instead of fossil fuels for production, and resulting in a significantly lower carbon footprint.

Our high quality, ultra strong tear resistant floss is great for tight teeth, and is both vegan and cruelty-free.  

50 Eco Floss Picks per pack.  

How are dental floss picks eco friendly?

Dental Floss Picks are growing in popularity because of their ease of use, particularly for caregivers who help others with flossing. Unfortunately, like with most things, the convenience comes at a price, which is a ton of single-use plastic.

These dental floss picks are made with plant based PLA (Polylactic Acid), derived from Corn, Cassava and Beets, so they're not contributing to the manufacturing of virgin plastics.

Please note - not all communities can compost PLA yet, so if yours doesn't these need to be disposed of in the trash. That said, since these are made from plants, not plastic, they're still a lower carbon footprint and therefore a cleaner alternative.

What are dental floss picks made with?

Handles made with plant based PLA (Polylactic Acid) derived from Cornstarch.

The Floss is made from ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) spun fibres.

How to use a floss pick

Pinching the pick handle between your thumb and fingers, line the floss up between your teeth and gently press down until it's in between your teeth.

Slide the pick back and forth and up and down in between your teeth to remove all debris.

Rinse your pick as required to keep it clean in between teeth.
