Biodegradable Dental Floss in Bamboo Case – 50m
Introducing… The Eco Warrior Vegan Dental Floss in a Bamboo Case! This natural dental floss is made from cornstarch-based resin, coated with Candelilla wax and flavoured with Spearmint oil. It comes in a natural bamboo case featuring a twist cap to ensure safety, a metal cap dispenser and can be reused with floss refills. Packed in a fully compostable and recyclable cardboard box.
Why did we choose bamboo?
We chose bamboo because it is one of the most sustainable and environmentally friendly materials in the world! In fact, growing bamboo requires little water, it does not require any fertilisers or pesticides and self-regenerates from its own roots. In just 3-4 months, bamboo plants can grow to full size, compared to the standard tree which can take 30+ years. Bamboo is also a VERY durable material and will not break easily as other materials do (e.g. glass). Once bamboo products reach the end of their life, they can be composted and returned back to the Earth.
Why you’ll LOVE this Vegan Dental Floss in Bamboo Case:
Many dental flosses are either made from waxed nylon (a plastic) rolled up in a small plastic container or silk rolled up in a glass or stainless steel jar. But, the first option isn’t environmentally friendly and the second option is not vegan friendly. So, that’s why we created VEGAN DENTAL FLOSS (made from cornstarch-based resin) in a refillable BAMBOO CASE (made from a natural, renewable and biodegradable material). With this dental floss, you’ll feel great knowing that you’ve taken that one, extra step towards creating a sustainable morning/night bathroom routine. No more harmful waste, no more broken glass jars and no more hunting around because you can’t find a dental floss that suits your needs!

Cornstarch, Candelilla wax, spearmint oil.
Resin, also known as polylactic acid (PLA), is derived from cornstarch and is compostable under specific conditions (e.g. heat, moisture, microbes). Home composting systems may not meet the conditions necessary, therefore, we recommend disposing of cornstarch resin-based products at industrial composting facilities. Ask your local council for more information as this can differ between councils. Alternatively, if your home composting system meets the conditions, this is the next best alternative as dental floss is a thin piece of string and may take less time to biodegrade than larger items. Note this product will take longer to break down in a home compost than industrial composting facilities.
