Or is it better? I mean, the wax is going to rub off in your mouth; the nylon, not so much. So I did nothing for a while. And then, I got a message from Jodi that thanks to input from Chantal, she had changed her product once again, choosing instead to coat the floss with vegetable-based candelilla wax.

I asked Jodi to explain how she got into this whole dental floss business in the first place. One day I grabbed my ugly plastic floss container to run to the ladies room to floss my teeth before my next class arrived.

I never forgot that day. It began with just a pretty plastic container. Then I discovered through Ann Richardson, other bloggers, and you, the amount of plastic waste that is generated from dental floss.

One look at the dental floss section at CVS convinced me I needed to change that. So I searched and searched until I found a container that met my standards. I started with the microcrystalline wax because it was the most affordable waxed floss. I changed to candelilla as soon as Chantal explained to me that microcrystalline, though food-based, was not the best option.

I agreed. So I switched as soon as I knew there was a market for Dental Lace refillable floss. In this case, Dental Lace became a better product. Plus I was able to keep the price the same. I agree that we all must do our part to eliminate plastic waste but businesses must do more too. I see product manufacturing as the biggest problem here.

Maybe I can show the dental floss manufacturers that it is possible to create a sustainable product and make a profit. You can support my plastic-free mission by purchasing Dental Lace dental floss and refills from Life Without Plastic. Each package comes with 66 yards 60 meters of floss.

Le Negri natural silk floss comes in a recyclable metal tin instead of a plastic container. I like that the floss is natural silk coated with beeswax and that the tin is plastic-free and recyclable. I also like that the floss itself does not come on a plastic spool, as Eco-Dent does. What makes Le Negri come in second place is that the container is not refillable, which would require less energy than having to purchase and recycle a brand new metal container each time.

Le Negri is made in France and is much more expensive than Dental Lace. It costs more, and you only get 13 yards 12 meters of floss. I also like that the nylon floss does seem to be stronger than both of the silk flosses.

I just need to be more careful, I guess. Also, Eco-Dent is more affordable yards in the package for the same price as Dental Lace and is easier to find in brick and mortar stores like Whole Foods or Pharmaca. The other thing that drives me crazy about Eco-Dent is that the cardboard container does not travel well.

And you have to be careful around water, which is ironic since it mostly gets used in the bathroom. This is what mine looks like after many trips:. Have you found any other plastic-free or zero-waste dental floss options? Let us know in the comments. Yesterday, I wrote about toothbrush companies incorrectly claiming that their toothbrush bristles were biodegradable, and….

Since Tom's of Maine switched from recyclable aluminum toothpaste tubes to plastic laminate a few…. After last month's comprehensive review of eco-friendly toothbrushes, I tried another alternative: neem chew sticks…. I only post ads for companies I patronize myself. Your support helps to fund my plastic-free mission. Silk floss is not cruelty-free. Do your research…Thousands of silk worms have their lives cut short for not only clothing but also silk dental floss. Stop it!! Just purchased 2 boxes of eco-dent from Amazon.

I wont do that again. Sent in a plastic mailer, each box of eco-dent was wrapped in a plastic bag, and the roll of floss encased in plastic.

Though not meant to be dental floss, it is food grade, bio-degradable and the 10, plus yard cone will last a lifetime or more. It does not come in a pretty container but I just reuse my old floss container to cut the thread. We all have those. I bought dental lace. During my first use, I accidentally dropped it on the floor and the glass container shattered. I still have several spools of dental lace, but now I need another container.

Do you know where I could find a metal or wooden dispenser for the floss? Looking for a good, strong eco-friendly floss. We tried the Dental Lace, silk floss, but it easily shreds and breaks. We do like the glass container though.

Might have to go with nylon floss refills for the glass container…. I always love your thorough and thoughtful analyses. Thank you for the continued sharing of information and your unwavering dedication! Would using a stainless steel dental tooth scaler be a reasonable plastic free replacement for flossing? Until someone comes up with a flosser where you can replace the floss on the pick, I think I might try using a scaler for myself and daughters instead??

Plastic dental floss replaced silk in the late 30s and we have had no NO choice since then. Bidegradable and or compostable is progress. With no substantiation-it leaves the door wide open for greenwashing. I would really like to find a stronger waste-free floss but it seems so difficult :. A WaterPik is made of plastic, but you buy it once and never have to replace it. Anyone heard of this one? Hey there Stacy. Comes in a glass jar, paper packaging.

Looks like no plastic. Will try. Will find out about refills. Wish there were more plastic free alternatives. Other companies are not currently supplying this accreditation. Great article! The amount of plastic we use is nauseating! The other two are, but Eco-Dent is not. However, it has the least plastic packaging of all the vegan options. Vegans would not use silk dental floss. As plastic never biodegrades it is killing millions of animals by choking and maiming slowly while floating free in waterways and on land after landfills.

Silk worms give 3 miles of thread. And die in infancy. Silk is back in the soil within weeks. There is plenty of research to show that plants do indeed feel. All life matters. Soy is the number one destroyer of the Amazon rainforest … what do vegans eat a plethora of … SOY! Have you found any eco-friendly refillable flossers?

Thanks :. I have not. However, in doing some research on dental flossers, I did find this article arguing against them as not being the best way to floss teeth.

Flossers do not replace flossing properly. If used for extracting a piece of food.. But people are using them to replace floss which actually transfers bacteria from where it is back molar to where it isnt front teeth without washing in between. Bad for your teeth, gums, and the planet.

When THEY introduce a product.. Worth the wait? Hello thank you for this!! Do you know of any plastic free water flossers? A friend of mine remembers watching his mother floss her teeth with her hair. Perhaps she learned it from past generations — an easy zero-cost, zero-waste solution for those with longer hair. If bacteria is left alone for hours it starts to create little colonies. These colonies live off the sugars in your mouth so if you can disrupt them every 24hrs they are less effective in doing damage.
