I have just found a new dental floss as sold by Anything But Plastic
What you didn’t know you’ve been waiting for, plastic free dental floss! For those of you whose dental hygiene has been suffering because you realised that dental floss is plastic wrapped in plastic, this is one for you.
Not only will your friends thank you for removing that little bit of lettuce you’ve had stuck in your teeth for months, but you will look stylish doing so with the delightfully designed container. You even get a refill spool of floss thrown in as well. Sweet.
Online from Amazon as above or Big Green Smile
This is the blurb from the website…
- “Radius Biodegradable Silk Floss is made from all natural, pure silk coated in candelilla wax.
- This is not a vegan product.
- Radius Silk Floss is the only certified organic fully bio-degradable floss. It is made from 100% pure silk farmed by a Columbian Fair Trade Co-op.
- Radius Silk Floss is completely compostable.
I have never used it so I don’t know how plastic free the whole product actually is – is the box plastic wrapped? I would assume so. What is the silk wrapped around? But the floss itself is plastic free. Two steps forward, one back I would guess.
Any input gratefully received.
