If you're flossing daily (we know you are!), you're sending dozens of those little plastic containers to landfills a year. In America alone, these little guys could fill a landfill the size of a football field six stories high. With Dental Lace, you're opting for glass containers that can be easily refilled. The floss itself, made with 100% biodegradable silk, can also be composted leaving you with a zero waste oral hygiene routine.
