VEGAN TOOTH FLOSS
This dental floss smells beautiful, comes in a beautiful glass jar and glides like a dream. Did you know that regular floss is typically plastic?! Beyond just being plastic, many contain harmful ingredients. It's coated with PFC's which is a chemical that's found in teflon. The PFC's are added to make the floss glide better. We've found a great alternative - The Seed & Sprout floss is vegan, plastic free and works beautifully.
This dental floss is made from a cornstarch-based PLA, a compostable plant based renewable floss which is vegan friendly. It comes in a re-usable glass dispenser, making it convenient to carry with you.
What you get
1 x reusable glass jar with 30 metres of plant-based mint floss
Why we love it

Compostable vs. Home Compostable
There is a difference - this floss is compostable. In order to compost, PLA products require high heat, sufficient moisture and time to completely break down into carbon dioxide, water and a small amount of humus, a soil nutrient.
Our floss is nice and thin and may require less time than a coffee cup or piece of cutlery made from PLA, but it will still need certain conditions which may or may not be achieved in home compost. It may be the case that it will break apart into smaller pieces but may not fully compost under home compostable conditions.
