Dental Floss - BlueRegular price €7.70 Save €-7.70
Here's one more way to create less plastic waste in the bathroom: silk floss in a glass container!
Unlike some other silk floss that contains a strand or two of plastic to make it stronger, Dental Lace is 100% silk fibers.
It is also coated in candelilla wax, which is vegan.
It is squeezed from the leaves of the candelilla shrub.
The new wax is not petroleum based and there is, as always, no plastic.
Container = Glass
Lid = Stainless Steel
Label = Waterproof Poly Label (sneaky plastic!)
Floss = 100% mulberry silk floss
Floss Coating = Candelilla wax (vegan) + natural mint flavouring
Packaging = Boxes are 100% post-consumer fiber that is certified FSC and PCF free, manufactured using renewable biogas energy and printed with soy-based inks.
This product is 99% plastic-free; it does have a waterproof poly label to protect you if glass container breaks. Please remove this label before recycling!
Contains 2, 30 meter spools of floss, totaling 60 meters
Measurements: 1.25 cm x 5 cm
BUT I HEARD YOU SAY...
"...it seems expensive, though?"
You are right. It does seem expensive. Let's think about it... Average price of dental floss seems to come in at around 1 - 5 for around 25 to 50m depending on brand. Dental lace is 7.70, but you get 2 spools of floss, 60m altogether. And nicer refillable packaging. Plus, the refills by themselves when it comes to that are obviously cheaper because there is no container. And no more throw away plastic disposable dental floss. How many containers of plastic dental floss would you throwaway in your lifetime otherwise? How many would everyone who uses dental floss throw away in their lifetimes? Where are all those plastic containers and plastic floss ending up?!
Synthetic dental floss!
Dental floss is a synthetic fiber that does not decompose in real time.
In average, each one of us will spend 15 days of our life, total, flossing our teeth.
Just do the maths: 15 days multiplied by God knows how many people.
