Dental Lace: Refillable Dental Floss

For years, I’ve carried around dental floss to make sure I could get my teeth clean while away at work. Not only were the containers ugly, but I realized that they were rarely recyclable. While it seems like a small thing, it all adds up! So I decided to create my own fashionable, refillable floss containers.

If everyone in the U.S. flosses their teeth according to ADA recommendations, every year our empty containers alone would fill a landfill the size of a football field that’s 6 stories high—just for the empty floss dispensers! —
