Dental floss is the most plasticky thing in the bathroom, the product itself is made out of Nylon or Teflon and and the box is most often Polypropylene., which can be recycled (but only into a lower quality item). Dental floss is problematic in the marine environment as it has the potential to tangle and wrap round things. No dental floss should ever be put down the toilet because it can catch in pipes and contribute to blockages.
Even though our dental floss is silk, which will biodegrade, the timescale over which it does is too long for it to break down in the pipes. However, correctly disposed of it will break down over time and disappear to nothing.
Packaging - Compostable cardboard box. Refill pack are protected in a compostable corn starch bag.
How To Use
Gently pull out about 30cm of floss and roll the floss around your thumb to control the strength and position.
Floss slowly between each tooth, reaching close to the gum line.
