Why does the planet need this?
Your normal nylon dental floss is one of the many substances that does not degrade naturally, and is made from crude oil, just like plastic is. This nylon inevitably ends up in our oceans and landfills. In the ocean, it may end up in the bellies of many marine animals, including our mascot, the narwhal! This in turn ends up being ingested by us.
Dental floss made of bamboo works just as well as your standard dental floss, but does not pollute our environment. Bamboo degrades naturally and has a high strength-to-weight ratio, making it an ideal material to make dental floss out of and to replace your old polluting dental floss with.
Why do you need this?
Dental floss is essential to keeping your teeth and gums healthy. It helps clean your gums and teeth, and kills bacteria, germs, and fungi that might be lingering in your mouth at the end of the day. Now you can use floss without polluting the environment!
Also, our bamboo floss comes in an eco-friendly glass jar, which can be reused or recycled at the end of its life, to help eliminate the waste you produce. Dental floss is 100 ft (30.5 m) long.
