SQUEAKY CLEAN GUMS: Taking our dentist’s advice and flossing every day used to come with a dilemma of waste. The choice of expelling bacteria producing food from your teeth has become a lot easier.
BE PROUD TO OWN: The glass and aluminium container, with the handy rip off slit, is where the bulk of the reduction is achieved. Keep your own container for life.
A REDUCTION OF 98% IN PLASTIC: Made from 80% Bamboo Charcoal fibre and only 20% of Polyester Yarn. In total there is about 1g of plastic in this dental floss. Compare that to the overall 50g that you get when buying dental floss made entirely of nylon contained in a plastic tub.
BRIGHTEN YOUR SMILE IN TWO WAYS: How beautiful is it to turn something you do every day into a healthy waste-reducing habit! Feeling satisfied you’re doing your bit for the planet.
Oral care is a very tricky swap for anyone interested in cutting down on plastic usage in their daily habits. I couldn’t really find any dental floss that didn’t have a lot of plastic in it until I finally found the amazing Georganics Dental Floss.
