Dental Floss

Dental floss is normally made from nylon which is a type of plastic. I came across an alternative before I was even really looking for one. I was shopping in a local zero waste store and found ‘georganics’ natural floss. It is made from Peace silk, coated with Candelilla wax and flavoured with organic Spearmint oil. The silk is compostable. It comes in a reusable glass pot with a metal cap. You can buy refills so the pot can be used again. The cardboard box it comes in can be recycled or composted.

I have been using this plastic free alternative for about a year now and I am really pleased with it. It works just as well as regular nylon floss but without all the plastic.
