An eco-friendly floss for people who want to rid their teeth of plaque and cavity-causing bacteria—while giving a second life to single-use plastics.
Cocofloss has released a new floss, composed of 85% recycled polyester and sourced from post-consumer polyethylene terephthalate—PET water bottles. According to the company, the vast majority of dental floss is made from virgin plastic.
Aware that only 9% of the world’s plastic is recycled, Cocofloss is working to reduce single-use plastic waste, with the introduction of these more eco-friendly spools. With this shift, the company aims to divert more than 500,000 water bottles from landfills over the next 12 months.
According to the company, compared to virgin polyester, this new material requires fewer processing stages and takes 64% less energy to make, resulting in 32% less CO2 emissions and 94% less water consumption. The end result is designed to offer a premium, high-performance thread with a sustainable identity.
Cocofloss offers floss refills in fully compostable packaging made of renewable wood cellulose.
