I've been frustrated with how frequently my low-waste string floss breaks (my back teeth are really tight) & disappointed because I couldn't find a non-plastic floss pick alternative.. until now. So grateful these exist - they are exactly what I've been looking for.
I floss every day, sometimes multiple times, because I’m one of those lucky folks with gaps big enough to park a Cadillac in. I always felt a small pang of guilt using the plastic Costco picks, so I tried a couple of zero plastic alternatives. Unfortunately they were never robust enough to get the job done, and I would end up with floss stuck in between my teeth. Enter Happy Eco. A friend recommended them as “the real deal” and he was completely correct. Now I can floss guilt free and know that I’m doing one more small thing for the future. Thank you, Happy Eco!
This is a perfect way to not only prevent floss waste, but to also be able to use picks that won't litter the planet. I love that these are biodegradable and the floss stays taut with multiple uses. I use one pick for 2-3 days, rinsing after each use, before throwing it out. The packaging was also eco-friendly - recyclable/compostable external package and, I think (?) a biodegradable or recyclable bag.
The floss is a little thicker than the kids' picks, but the angle on the neck is perfect for peeps of every size. Sooo much easier to use. I get a few uses out of them and feel less bad about throwing away regular plastic. Will buy again!
Excited to have found plant-based floss picks that work great and can be added to our compost instead of throwing away more plastic.
