When it comes to eco-friendly floss, the team at Ecoternatives have tried a lot. That means floss made form corn, recycled plastic, ashima silk, and bamboo. The material we always come back to is bamboo. It's often the most sustainable, and it's unexpectedly strong.

Fresc's bamboo floss is carefully designed to avoid snapping or fraying while still behaving like conventional floss. And instead of being coated with PFAS, it's coated with a plant-derived candelilla wax to help it glide between your teeth. PFAS are known as a "forever chemical" that has been linked to liver damage, harm to the immune system, developmental issues, and even cancer. However, for some reason, it's still legal in floss.

This 98ft spool is also infused with natural mint oils to enhance it's taste.


Bamboo, glass, aluminum.

About The Brand

Bamboo Switch is a mom and pop shop that believes in helping people "make the switch" to sustainable bamboo products. They also believe that everyone should be able to make a difference, not just more affluent people. They source their bamboo from Vietnam and pay workers a fair and ethical wage.

What's really impressive is that they donate 5% of their profits to Sea Shepard. A organization that protects our oceans.

The Environmental Problem

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), for every person in the US who flosses their teeth, just the empty floss dispensers would fill a football field 6 stories high every year.

A Harvard study also found that many conventional dental flosses contain flourine, which indicates the presences of PFA's.

Health effects associated with PFA's include cancer, liver damage, decreased fertility, increased risk of asthma, and thyroid disease.

Chemicals in this class are found in nonstick pans, waterproof jackets, fire extinguisher foam, and more.

It’s floss - does what it’s supposed to do. Even better that I finally found one that isn’t made out of nylon/teflon :) and it’s refillable!

Plastic free and refillable

What's not to love? I've started flossing again with a lot less guilt. My teeth and the environment are much better off now.
