Biodegradable Bamboo Floss Description
30 metres of bamboo dental floss with activated charcoal and a refillable glass jar with metal lid
Our Zero Waste Dental Floss is made from natural charcoal bamboo fibres and Candelilla wax, and peppermint essential oils, which gives it a very mild mint flavour. This bamboo floss is vegan friendly and completely biodegrades in your compost bin in roughly 6-12 months.
Once you have finished your 30 metres of biodegradable dental floss, you can purchase the zero waste bamboo floss refills and pop them into the same glass jar dispenser.
The activated charcoal in the tooth floss has powerful toxin-clearing properties, which has proven to remove stains like plaque, red wine and coffee on your teeth. This activated charcoal fibres are very soft on your teeth, and will not scratch away the enamel

Instructions – How to Use Your Biodegradable Bamboo Dental Floss in Glass Jar
The glass jar has a metal lid, so once you pull out the desired length of dental floss, hook the piece of floss around the little metal piece that is popping out of the lid. Once the floss is ‘hooked’, you should be able to pull firmly and the bamboo dental floss will easily break off. If the bamboo floss has fallen out of its hole, unscrew the metal lid, find the end of the dental floss and gently pull it through the tiny hole in the metal lid. Once a decent amount off floss has been pulled through, you can screw the metal lid back on to the glass jar.
Disposal – Where to Dispose the Biodegradable Eco Dental Floss.
The bamboo dental floss with activated charcoal is completely biodegradable, so it can either be placed into your compost bin, or in the regular landfill bin. The glass jar is refillable, so you can easily replace your finished floss with biodegradable floss refills, that are sold separately without the glass jar.
If you want to dispose of the glass jar with metal lid, you can place both of them in your recycling bin, but ensuring they aren’t joined together.
The box packaging is made from 100% recycled Kraft paper, so it can also be tossed into your compost bin or recycling bin after you open your biodegradable tooth floss.
Why Choose Biodegradable Plastic Free Floss?
Traditional dental floss is composed of almost entirely of petroleum-based plastic and nylon fibres, that do not decompose naturally in your lifetime.
Because dental floss is so flimsy and lightweight, it can easily be picked up in a puff of wind from your trash can, and carried into our natural environment. Dental floss can end up tangled around wildlife, strangling and suffocating them, as well as ingested because it is mistaken for food.
Not only does traditional floss have a negative environmental impact, but it’s actually bad for you, too. It is coated in highly toxic substances called PFASs, a subset of perfluorocarbons (PFCs), which are also responsible for some of the most potent greenhouse gas emissions according to the EPA.
