I was flossing my teeth after lunch one day when the thought crossed my mind that someone should make a prettier floss container. Fast forward 15 years and that is what I set out to do. I had no background in business; I just started talking to people I trusted and did what came naturally to me as a career librarian... I researched.
Along the way, I found out that for every person in the U.S. who flosses their teeth according to ADA recommendations, just the empty floss dispensers alone would fill a landfill the size of a football field six stories high. My mission changed from creating a pretty floss container to embarking on a journey to eliminate plastic dental floss altogether.
Today, Dental Lace Refillable Floss is the only fashionable refillable eco-friendly dental floss on the market. Every time we sell one glass container, it replaces seven plastic containers. I'm proud to bring a product to the market that can help us all protect our natural resources.
