Dental Floss

How to choose sustainable dental floss

When shopping for dental floss, opt for plastic-free products that are made with bamboo and coated with candelilla wax. Avoid floss that’s made with nylon or PLA and coated with PFAS. If you can, buy floss that’s packaged in reusable glass containers or disposable paper containers instead of plastic, and when you throw your floss away, make sure it goes in the trash and not the toilet.
