Dental floss isn’t food, and really had to make a case for itself, to earn space on our shelves. But, this floss has a couple unique selling points. The floss itself is not white, but an off-white beige, which means it has not been bleached. Had never thought of floss being bleached, but the contrast makes it obvious. Secondly, it comes in a cardboard dispenser, along with this information: “As many as 700 million plastic floss containers are discarded each year! As much as 9 million pounds of non-renewable, non-recycled floss containers end up in our already over-crowded landfills each year.”
