I think that the floss dispenser itself might be plastic though the floss is biodegradable silk. Any one know?

1 x Radius Floss, handspun Silk Floss Waxed with Candelilla Wax 30 meters
1 x Radius Floss, handspun Silk Floss Waxed…

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.

  1. Thanks for the info. I will update the post. Do you does the ox come plastic wrapped as well?

    Yes silk worms do get killed to make most silk threads. There is something called peace silk where they are allowed to live but it is more time consuming so much more expensive. I don’t know what kind of silk this is. I am guessing the cruel kind otherwise they would say.

    Thanks for dropping by.
