Gently Minted Waxed Silk Dental Floss
Love the packaging. Don’t love the floss. It breaks so easily 😭 Maybe it needs more wax? I do like the job that it does. It gets in deep into nooks & crannies, but I end up using so much because it keeps breaking.
I got the pack with the glass dispenser and extra roll. It works great. I'm disappointed that the extra roll comes in a plastic bag. Also, now that I have the glass dispenser, there's no way to get a refill without either getting another dispenser or some other item (toothbrush, lip balm) that I don't want. Seems pretty wasteful. So I'll just wait until refills are available, before purchasing more.
I'm so sorry to hear this! Our floss refills don't come in plastic - those little baggies are actually 100% made from cornstarch and are OK Compost Certified.
Also - we do offer the option to buy only the refill spools (without dispenser). You'll find that option here:
Just use the drop down to toggle between the variants :)

Love that it is biodegradable and plastic free, but the silk production techniques just breaks my heart :( Can't you find a way to make a vegan version?
Our floss is from a Peace Silk (or Ahisma Silk) farm. This process is a non-violent silk breeding & harvesting one that allows the silkworm to leave its cocoon, which can be harvested to make silk. This type of silk is an alternative to the cheaper process of boiling worms in their cocoons in order to create silk - it costs a bit more, but we think it's worth it.
Your Floss | Our Planet
Team etee is big on keeping their chompers and the houses that they live in (ie their gums) healthy, so having a plastic-free floss option was a no-brainer over in these parts.
Each spool contains 30 metres of our 100% pure mulberry silk, candelilla wax and natural peppermint oil floss (total of 60 metres of floss in each 2 spool box - that's 2/3 the length of a football field of floss!) So, let's get flossin' (and we ain't talkin' about that fancy dance all the kids are doing these days)!
Completely biodegradable & plastic-free floss to keep your entire family's teeth healthy!
