TreeBird Pure Silk Eco Floss

If you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, you’ve probably heard a lot of alarming facts about microplastics. For example, the average person swallows about 50,000 pieces of plastic per year and inhales around the same amount. Gross. This information may have even spurred you on to using reusable water bottles and bringing your own bag to the grocery store. Good for you, that’s progress. But, what about your bathroom routine? Take your oral care regimen for example. Did you know that most dental floss is made of nylon, a synthetic polymer derived from chemicals, aka plastic, spooled up in a small plastic box. So if you’re committed to good oral hygiene and flossing daily then you’re essentially running a long, thin fiber of plastic back and forth between your gums day after day after day. That’s a lot of plastic exposer to one of the most sensitive areas of your body. Do yourself and the planet a favor and give compostable silk floss a try instead. TreeBird’s Pure Silk Eco Floss has a subtle mint flavor and is coated with natural candelilla wax, to help reach those tricky areas between your pearly whites. The 33-yard long spool of 100% silk floss comes in a glass reusable holder, for easy refill and no plastic waste, inside a compostable paper box, with soy-based ink, and plant-based stickers to keep things secure. Enjoy a cleaner smile, while supporting a cleaner planet.
