Which Biodegradable Dental Floss is Best for Me?

Environmentally-friendly floss can offer better value than petroleum options for oral care. Removing plaque and food particles requires refinement. Upgrading from standard floss picks can make a massive difference with tooth decay and give you a brighter smile. When reviewing all our biodegradable products, you may ask, "Which biodegradable floss is best for me?"

Choosing The Best Organic Dental Floss

Those who are eco-minded have to consider two main factors. Which floss is the most effective at cleaning their teeth, and which is the most eco-friendly?

Zero waste is an important lifestyle for many people. It helps protect the environment and reduces the amount of plastic choking landfills and oceans.

Vegan Floss Options

When looking for eco-friendly floss, there are three main types: Bamboo, silk, and Corn PLA fiber. Here's a brief comparison of all three, so you can find the best natural floss for yourself. 

Bamboo Charcoal Floss

The first floss to examine is bamboo charcoal floss. This kind of floss is made from the fibers of bamboo. Charcoal is added to it during the manufacturing process.

Bamboo remains one of the best ways to make an eco-friendly floss. This is because bamboo can be easily harvested and grown; manufacturers have labeled the tree as a renewable resource. It takes considerably less time for bamboo to grow than trees. It can also be planted in thicker groves, allowing for an enormous bounty.

Thanks to its structure, bamboo floss is strong. The woven bamboo fiber holds up when used to floss between teeth that are tight together. It's also biodegradable and compostable. 

As a final benefit, the bamboo compostable floss only contains a small amount of biodegradable polymer. You receive zero waste with a renewable plant-based product.

For vegans, bamboo floss is also a great option because none of the ingredients come from an animal or an animal-byproduct. The use of charcoal can also be a great way to help whiten enamel and further ensure all bacteria and food particles are scraped between the gaps. 

Silk Floss

Another eco-friendly type of floss is silk. Some vegans may not appreciate natural silk because it is taken from silkworms. However, the practices used to harvest the silk ensures that the worms remain alive throughout the process.

Reducing the harm to the silkworms may be acceptable for some vegans. Regardless, others who are against using any animal byproduct may better enjoy bamboo or corn PLA fiber floss. 

Silk floss is, however, plastic-free. It's less resilient than bamboo but still has excellent resistance resilience. Silk can degrade or be composted, so you can be sure that it isn't slowly filling up landfills like plastic floss. You can also treat sensitive gums with this delicate material.

Corn PLA Fiber and PLA Charcoal Floss

One final option is PLA corn floss. This corn fiber is another great vegan option. It's plastic-free and comes in two varierities, regular in an stainless steel container and Charcoal version in glass jar.

The steel container can either be repurposed or given to recyclers. Recyclers can melt the containers down and use them again for another product.

PLA corn floss is made from corn-based plastic. It's the least resistant of all the floss types, so it isn't great for those with tight teeth. However, this floss can be great for those with teeth that aren't compacted, ensuring your oral health.  The charcoal version of the PLA is more resistant than the regular one, so it might not even break on you.
