I floss with floss forks because I have a lot of trouble with the big spools of floss, but I don’t feel great about throwing away all that plastic. Does anyone know of any eco-friendly alternative?

I love Cocofloss! It’s still a spool of floss, but super easy to use with the box set up and also the floss itself is infused with coconut oil, making it easy to slide between teeth but it also expands once you start using it, making your teeth extra clean! Also yummy flavors vs the weird taste of plastic. It lasts forever as well, and when you are done, the packaging is completely recyclable! Plus, always a plus when it’s made with no toxins or animal testing.

I had the same problem! I switched over to using a waterpik instead on the recommendation of my dentist and have been using it for about three months. It's a little bit of an investment, and it does take some getting used to, but in the long run you're saving a lot of plastic waste. I also feel a lot fresher and like I got a deeper clean when I use my waterpik as opposed to traditional floss.

No, I use a small attachment to a handle which works really better for my tight teeth. But I am sorry to say there is a plastic component that I have to throw away. It is the only apparatus that works for me to floss though.

There are devices that shoot a stream of water into your mouth that gets in between the teeth. A hydro flossed, I think they’re called.

Great to hear you are conscious of your environmental impact, I am too. I use floss harps/picks that are made from corn starch. They are available in Boots in the UK. I am sure you could find them online.

I love the sentiment here, great question!
