Green + Kind Plant Based Floss Refills, Mint Flavour
2 x 30m of floss refills. Glass vial not included.
Our Green + Kind floss is made from PLA which is derived from corn, it has a candelilla wax coating and a natural mint flavour. It's a vegan floss and a great alternative to floss which is made from nylon or non-vegan floss made from silk, which we would obviously never sell. We looked for a floss for a long time that was a better choice and this, in our opinion, is the best current option. Our refills come in a paper bag in a cardboard box so no plastic. They fit the glass vial the original floss comes in. Note: the floss is a little thicker than nylon floss due to PLA being used.
More about PLA
PLA is polylatic acid and is a bioplastic so is derived from cornstarch, a renewable source, not petroleum. When you see 'biodegradable' cups and containers being served they are often made from PLA. Many organisations will claim PLA is biodegradable or compostable; we're not claiming this as it does need to meet high temperatures and have moisture to biodegrade. You might not have the right conditions in your home compost and, in Australia, there is very little industrial composting happening. Is it better than nylon or silk - absolutely! It's refillable, does not have any plastic packaging, is vegan, cruelty-free and is not made from petroleum.
Disposing of the floss - if you can dispose in industrial composting please do. Home composting is the next best alternative as it is a thin string so may take less time to break down. Finally dispose of in general waste; please never flush down the toilet.
