What Bloggers Say about Dental Lace!

  

My Plastic Free Life For ten years, I’ve been searching for the perfect plastic-free dental floss. Back when I wrote my first dental floss post, the greenest choices were either biodegradable silk floss in rigid plastic containers (I’m looking at you, Radius) or non-biodegradable Eco-Dent nylon floss in a cardboard box.  (Some brands like Tom’s of Maine or Radius seemed to come in cardboard boxes but actually included a hard plastic dispenser inside the box.)  There was no biodegradable floss in plastic-free packaging. Times have changed! Dental Lace is the winner not only because it’s the only refillable floss I’ve found, but also because the owner is so responsive to customer feedback. -- Beth Terry, My Plastic Free Life

 

Trash is for Tossers Dental Lace's out of the box approach makes it the perfect floss for package free. The containers are glass, refillable, and come in totally sustainable and compostable packaging. -- Lauren Singer, Trash is for Tossers


Earth911 Flossing your teeth is healthy — and you should feel good about it. But you might not if you stop to think about the amount of waste those little plastic containers create over time. If everyone in the country flossed their teeth according to American Dental Association recommendations, we would fill up a landfill the size of a football field that’s six stories high with the empty floss dispensers. Okay, you might be thinking, but not everyone flosses as they should. True, but even if just half of Americans flossed according to ADA recommendations, the empty containers would still fill up a football field three stories high. No matter how you look at it, that’s a lot of plastic each year for something as seemingly insignificant as a floss dispenser. -- Anna Johansson, Earth911

 

Green Indy How I got rid of the trash can in my zero waste bathroom...It’s funny how zero waste suddenly brings small things into sharp perspective. Toothbrushes, those innocuous little things, are a gigantic burden on our environment. One billion plastic toothbrushes are thrown away every year in the United States alone. And once they end up in the landfill, they take centuries upon centuries to even begin to break down. Clearly, better choices need to be made. Thankfully, there are options. Dental Lace is a great company for plastic-free silk floss and they offer a bamboo-fiber option if you prefer vegan. -- Polly Barks, Green Indy
