Plastic-Free Dental Floss
There quite LITTER-ally has never been a better time to switch from plastic floss to a natural-fiber floss. This biodegradable floss is made from bamboo and corn, and comes with a refillable glass dispenser. Flossing is recommended at least once a day to help prevent plaque build-up, tooth decay, bad breath, and gingivitis.
The best-case scenario for the floss you throw away is that it will end up in a landfill. More likely though, it will end up in our water supplies and, ultimately, the ocean, where it can threaten precious marine life. If ingested by a marine animal, plastic coated floss can cause asphyxiation, or even organ failure. Do your part to protect your mouth and the planet by switching to a biodegradable floss!
