I am so excited to introduce what I feel is the best vegan dental floss on the market yet! This Corn Starch PLA floss from Bambaw is 100% vegan friendly and biodegradable. The floss is made from PLA which is a bioplastic, in other words plastic derived from plant-based material and Bambaw have decided to use corn starch to create their floss. This makes it 100% plant based but then processed to PLA which can fully decompose to natural elements under certain conditions. Even though it's not home compostable, it's biodegrade; to biodegrade it needs to be done under certain temperature and enzymes, this happen mostly in an industrial compost where all products made from bioplastics are recycled. Bambaw are also continuing their efforts to find a solution that is vegan and compostable! WHAT IS PLA? Poly(lactic acid) or polylactic acid or polylactide (PLA) is a biodegradable and bioactive thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starc, cassava roots, chips or starch, or sugarcane.
