Finally a Zero Waste floss!
Our original floss, Flosspot™ Silk, is a refillable mini mason jar filled with luxurious silk dental floss, lightly waxed for strength and ease of use between tight teeth, lab tested for purity. Because flavouring can change lab results, we chose not to add flavouring. Both Flosspot™ varieties are fully compostable.
Flosspot™ Silk was several years in the making. We wanted to get it right the first time by launching with complete lab-tested authentication for purity and transparency for our customers and we welcome any and all feedback. Plastic under the gum line (especially when coated in teflon) either with floss or a toothbrush bristle, simply no longer makes sense, especially now that healthier alternatives are available.
In 2015, KMH Touches was promoting an on the wall floss dispenser which was slowly catching on across Canada. The dispenser made sense in that you fill it once, and then refill yearly – saving many plastic floss dispensers from entering landfills.
But it was in fact plastic, as was the floss. After viewing the short film Albatross, we decided that we needed to find a better way that did not add to the plasticide witnessed in that very compelling movie.
We ordered an antique dispenser online as a decoration for our office in downtown Galt, Cambridge, Ontario. As it sat there, it occurred to us . . . THAT is how things USED to work – before plastic.
