Where to Buy Eco-Friendly Biodegradable Floss Picks in the UK

Floss pick

Floss picks are a small part of a big problem: plastic waste. Floss picks contribute to the massive amount of plastic that is polluting the oceans all over the world.

The problem isn’t really the dental floss part of the floss picks, although this does play a part and can be eaten by animals.

The main problem with floss picks is the plastic handle. These handles get tossed in the rubbish bin and then transported all over the world or end up on landfill sites and never decompose.

We need to start making changes to our daily lives and the products we use to ensure that the planet can survive to support our kids. If we don’t, the world may be a far scarier place for our children.

We need to reduce our plastic footprint, but this can be tricky.

Unfortunately, many big companies haven’t got the memo that plastic is killing our planet yet.

This can mean that getting hold of plastic alternatives to daily products can be difficult. Thankfully, there are some amazing plastic-free products available from smaller companies, just like the ones below.

The eco-friendly floss picks below work just as well as the plastic versions (if not better in some cases). This means you won’t notice any difference to how well these clean your teeth and remove all the little pieces of food stuck between them.

You’ll be safe in the knowledge that the world is being made a little better because you are using eco-friendly floss picks instead of plastic ones.

Let’s take a look at some eco-friendly floss picks and see where you can buy the best.

  1. After getting through 60 floss picks in a year and then realising they aren’t recyclable, I’m now looking for something better for the environment! Looks like red23 don’t stock those picks anymore and The White Teeth Box are currently out of stock with their picks 🙁
