Floss and interdental brushes often come with unnecessary plastic. The retailers below supply alternatives which come in plastic-free, recyclable packaging with the products themselves having plastic content reduced as much as possible.


The same as with bamboo toothbrushes, the bristles on bamboo interdental brushes should be removed before composting.


TOP TIP: Eco-friendly floss can be bought in some zero waste shops. It's a great idea to support these eco-friendly businesses before shopping in big high street retailers. Find your nearest here.

We recommend their orange and spearmint options over the activated charcoal as with these two, the floss itself can be composted when finished with. They also stock refills so you can keep the glass dispenser and order a refill to go in it, saving on packaging.
