It's no secret that we're already big fans of by Humankind. The company has made it their mission to eliminate single-use plastics in the personal care product space, and today they're adding floss to the lineup.
On top of all the other problems COVID-19 is bringing to the world, we also feel like it's causing us to use even more plastic. With so many people turning to take-out as the safest alternative to cooking at home, we're throwing out even more plastic — food containers, silverware, bags, you name it.
We feel even more of a need now to help with the plastic crisis in other areas of our consumption, like personal care products. By Humankind's floss is made out of natural ingredients like silk, vegan wax, jojoba oil, and essential oils — and it's 100% biodegradable. Traditional floss is usually made out of a nylon material, which is a type of plastic that takes hundreds of years to biodegrade.
The other thing we like about by Humankind's floss is that is comes in a refillable container. The floss is held in a glass vessel, and it's topped with a silicone covering. You can choose between three different colors — blue, green, and maroon — and you can also choose between four different flavors of floss — peppermint, lemongrass, cardamom, and unscented.
The brand says that each spool of floss should last you about 3 months, which will set you back $60 for a year ($15 per spool). While it's definitely more expensive than your average floss, we think it's worth it to help save the planet.
