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!)
I had tried the silk floss previously (review below) and liked it very much. I have to say that I think I like the vegan corn floss even better. I do have some tight spaces in my teeth, so it's a little challenging there, but for the most part it is strong and works well. It has more of a dental tape feeling than the silk floss.
This is for the vegan refills.
I really like this floss. It's not too thick or abrasive on my teeth, but it doesn't totally shred before I'm done flossing like the geoorganics one. I do have a couple spots in my teeth that are close together that do pull on this a bit, but this floss doesn't totally break and get stuck in my teeth. I find I can just move spots on the floss instead for those parts.
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.
