This is my answer to the question....What made you think of a fashionable refillable dental floss container? Well you're looking at it. Inside this jar is examples of unattractive dental floss. I'm creating a good looking way to avoid single use dental floss containers and eliminating the ugly plastic waste it creates. I've created a refillable dental floss that helps us all eliminate plastic from our lives and our landfills. If only more product manufacturers would think this way, it would be a cleaner safer world for all of us.
Bea Johnson, author Zero Waste Home, has inspired me to "Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rot (and only in that order)." Not sure I'll ever get to a canning jar of waste per year but I love the challenge. At Dental Lace, Inc. we practice Bea's 5Rs as much as possible. Dental Lace refillable floss is designed to help you reach your Zero Waste goals. Visit her website to learn more about this amazing woman at http://www.zerowastehome.com/
Oops! In my rush to market I purchased poly packaging bags for Dental Lace refills. This went against my desire to remove plastic from landfills. Customers kindly gave me suggestions for new bags. So now I'm packaging all refills in compostable cellulose cellophane bags. Forgive me for my misstep. Thank you customers for helping me improve the eco-friendly properties of my product. I listen to you and respond when possible. Jodi
