Flossing: We all know we should do it more often. Dentists recommend doing it every day. Unfortunately, floss is mostly made of nylon and comes in a disposable plastic packaging. So, basically, it is plastic wrapped in plastic. Being small and lightweight, floss thread is part of the plastic products that most easily enter the environment.

Natural alternatives to synthetic

Luckily some alternatives to plastic floss exist. The two main options are bio-based plastic and silk floss. The former biodegrades in an industrial compost the latter biodegrades in your backyard compost.

A reusable floss dispenser

To be really zero-waste floss, the container should be reusable as well. A reusable floss dispenser can be refilled with floss coils. Reusable floss dispensers are usually made of glass or stainless steel.

The package includes two compostable floss coils of 50 metres. You can put them in a reusable dispenser. This swap is ideal to keep your zero-waste flossing habits.

Silk coils

This compostable floss is made of natural silk. Silk has been used by humans for thousands of years for its incredible strength and softness. So, it is well suited for interdental cleaning.

The 50 meters long eco-friendly floss refills are made of mulberry silk, candelilla wax and it has a refreshing peppermint touch. 50 meters of floss is enough for 200 flosses.

    Scheme

    Stainless-Steel

    Floss dispensers are usually made of glass which eventually ends up broken on the floor. With this stainless-steel dispenser, you are good to go for life. On top of this, stainless-steel is one of the world's most recycled material. Indeed, 60% of the new stainless-steel production comes from recycled material..

    SILK

    The floss is made of Ahimsa silk which is a method of non-violent silk breeding and harvesting. This method allows the completion of the silkworm's transition to its moth stage. In contrast, most silk harvesting requires the silkworms to be killed in their cocoon stage.

    Silk is one of the strongest natural fibres. It is perfect for gliding between teeth without breaking. Afterwards, being 100% natural, the silk floss degrades easily in backyard compost.

    Candelilla wax

    A vegetable wax extracted by boiling the plant. It is a non-gelling thickener and film former with protecting properties and making it the perfect wax to lubricate the floss and enable it to slide through teeth easily.

    Meet Mrs. Peng

    My name is Mrs Peng, and I am the workshop director at Yulan. I have been working for the company for six years now. I am 41 years old and have twin boys whom I love very much. They make me proud to be their mother, and I am working hard so they can make it to the university of their dreams.

    With a good 40-hour week, I get time to work and raise money for my boys while also doing the best I can to live happily. My dream is to travel abroad and see new places eventually.

    Working at Yulong is the best chance to achieve the dream for my boys and my travel plans. The bonus of working in Shandong province is that it is a seaside city, which means there is a lot of seafood. I mention it because I am a big fan of seafood and cook it as often as possible. So I can get scallop, oyster, shrimp, sea cucumbers, and more.

    We have 31 holidays a year, ranging from Tomb-Sweeping to New Year's Day, which lasts three days.

    I like working here because it feels fulfilling. We make small products that people can use in daily life. As some of us like to say, we are spreading smiles by helping people maintain healthy teeth. It is always a good feeling to see happy customers who love what we make. Oddly enough, I like the smell at work. We have many different flavours of dental floss in production. It smells good.

    Thanks to the work we provide and the work environment's pleasant conditions, we are lucky enough to earn more than the country average. My kids are still in junior middle school and have some way to go before they get to university. I trust that my work here will get them there and continue providing for them until they do.
