Refillable Plastic-Free Dental Floss: Vegan, Plant-based.
Did you know: If everyone in the U.S. flosses their teeth according to ADA recommendations, every year the empty containers alone would fill a landfill the size of a football field that’s 6 stories high— just for the empty floss dispensers!
Use reusable containers and refill spools instead!
This purchase includes one Dental Lace container with one 33-yard spool of plant-based polyactic acid/ PLA floss inside the container + one refill spool, for a total of 66 yards of floss.
Plant-based vegan floss is polylactic acid otherwise known as PLA -- a biobased "plastic" made from corn. It is biodegradable, and has candelilla wax and no peppermint essential oil flavor. This is a vegan alternative to silk floss.
* We will also be stocking just the refill spools in a few weeks if you already have a container

Please note that if you have tight teeth this may not be the floss for you. It is waxed, but given that it is 100 percent natural material, it can break in very tight spots. If you'd like to try a small sample before purchasing, we're happy to provide some. If you have further questions, please consult a dental professional.
End of Life
Cardboard box is recyclable, made of 100% post-consumer paperboard, and the refill bag is certified compostable.
There’s plenty of research out there reporting that PLA composts. Although we have not had it officially tested, we have tried it in our home bins and it composts in 6 months.
