LiveCoCo plant-based dental floss is made with 80% corn fibre, 10% microcrystalline wax and 10% mint Oil; 100% renewable resources (instead of crude oil), making use of a previously wasted by-product from the food industry.
As an added bonus, in certain areas of the UK, there is the possibility of composting this floss in your food caddy for industrial composting or at home, only if you have a HotBin.
Many companies sell bamboo charcoal floss and make claims of it being biodegradable, when in fact, it’s just nylon with some bamboo charcoal powder for colouring.
Silk floss is the only home compostable floss out there but it’s cruel; to make it, they boil or gas silkworms alive and there’s NO regulation for peace silk (which is meant to be a way of extracting the silk without harming them) and PETA warns against it.
