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 was excited to make the switch to this dental floss! The pros are that is is both vegan and compostable. The downsides are that it is pretty thick and that it breaks between some of my teeth. Those traits mean I will not be able to convince others in my house to use it, but I'll keep at it.
I just switched from using plastic to silk floss. The silk floss thread is a bit thicker than the plastic floss, but it's quick to get used to! Also very sturdy and hard to break.
Easy to use and works great.
Love this floss!
Love this floss! Super easy to put refill spools in the container, and it feels/works/everything just like "normal" floss that ends up in a landfill.
