What Are Biodegradable Dental Floss Picks?
Biodegradable dental floss picks are made from organically grown natural plant fibers. To be truly classified as a biodegradable floss pick, the floss pick handle & thread must be fully compostable at the end of their lifecycle and be used as fertilizer for new plants. The absence of petroleum based plastics also helps save resources for future generations.

Biodegradable Floss Picks vs Plastic Floss Picks
When you consider ways to reduce waste, you think of changing the way you recycle, how you cook, and even how you decorate your home. One small thing people don't think about is the floss they use every day to clean between their teeth!
Plastic floss is everywhere these days. You use it on a daily basis and sometimes even multiple times a day! With that being said, every plastic pick that gets disposed of fills our landfill and increases our carbon footprint. Plastic takes more than 500 years to decompose, meaning those plastic floss picks you, your parents, and your grandparents used as a kid... yeah they're still around!
In our opinion, we'd say biodegradable dental floss picks are better. However, we do understand that having a quality dental floss pick is crucial to your dental health. You don't want to be putting just anything in your mouth. You want to be positive that it's safe!
What Makes Us Different?
By giving you a zero waste dental floss pick and organic Nylon-4 thread, we made sure that these dental floss picks are 100% biodegradable! We want you to feel good when you use our products.
Plastic picks are outdated as we've come across more natural materials in recent ages. Everything in the package, including the packaging, is plant sourced without sacrificing quality & capability. Actually.. we made sure to improve it!
Our dental floss picks are both PFA & BPA Free. We use PLA material to manufacture our floss picks! PLA is made from renewable sources (sugar cane & corn starch) and is biodegradable. PLA is a bio plastic, we believe it's the future of all plastic based products since it's a natural resource and has the ability to decompose.
It’s incredibly easy, affordable, and effective. Simply use our biodegradable dental floss, then compost or recycle away the material after use!
