An Addition To ‘Ditch The Plastic’!!

By Bernie Bell

If you use dental floss, or those little ‘Christmas tree’ tufty inter-dental brushes – there is now an almost plastic-free alternative…….

Bamboo tooth picks Bernie Bell

The tufts are still plastic, but the rest is bio-degradable.  The handle is made from bamboo, the coloured tip and brush cap are made from a polymer made from corn starch, and the instruction leaflet and box are made from paper and cardboard.

98.7% of the package and its contents are biodegradable.

 Bamboo Piksters are available from Sutherlands pharmacy, Stromness.
