Yes I believe it does create more waste. There’s the package the sticks come in, the sticks themselves and the floss. Where as string floss just has the plastic container and the floss. If there was a tool to hold your floss as close to convenient as the sticks are but reusable then it could create less waste.
Yes. There’s way more plastic which is more waste. However, string floss and plastic floss are both non biodegradable, being harmful to all living creatures and the environment.

Yes when asked this question it leads to more plastic waste, but I've found its the only way I've been able to make it a habit is to not have it take very long and easy to do.
