If everyone in the U.S. flossed their teeth according to ADA recommendations, our empty containers alone would fill a landfill the size of a football field that’s 6 stories high in just one year — just for the empty floss dispensers!
Refillable dental floss is a simple and stylish solution. Each new floss purchase comes with a refillable glass container with a 33 yard spool of compostable silk or corn floss.
Refills are available separately in packs of 2 spools (66 yards total!) so you can use your container again and again.
The silk floss is the classic compostable floss we have always carried, and we now have a new compostable vegan corn-based version as well!
Since this floss is biodegradable, it can be a bit more prone to breakage than regular plastic floss; it can sometimes break between very tight spots between your teeth. We offer both silk and corn floss because the silk is a bit sturdier and might be a preferred option if you have tight spaces between your teeth.
The silk floss is made with 100% compostable silk. The other ingredients are candelilla wax and natural mint flavoring.
The vegan floss is made with a compostable corn fiber, candelilla wax and natural mint flavoring.
Floss dispensers are a small glass container with a metal lid. They come in a small kraft recyclable paper box.
Floss refills come in a small kraft recyclable paper box and a compostable paper wrapper.
Manufactured in China.
End of life
The floss is compostable after use, and the container is refillable! The container can also be recycled or passed along to a friend if it doesn't work out for you (but we hope it will!)
It’s just so cute and useful
I bought silk floss refills with the glass dispenser and it works really well. I love the aesthetics of the glass dispenser, too. I plan to try the corn floss next.
Refillable floss that's biodegradable is great, but the corn floss breaks pretty much every other time I use it. I'll probably stick with it, but it does take some getting used to.
I was a bit concerned after reading the description that said it "may break in tight spots", but I have had no problems at all! I am impressed with the quality of the floss and will definitely continue to purchase.
I love the container because it's plain! It's very easy to use and quite compact. I also like that my teeth feel thoroughly clean after I floss! However, I have a lot of fillings and tight areas, so unfortunately the corn floss itself isn't a great fit for those spots. I'll be using it in the areas that I can, and I'll definitely give the silk floss a go. The nice thing is, for the most part, I just need a different refillable floss type. I'm happy that it's plastic free !! And very cost effective!
