    I am a good recycler and am trying to be better about reducing packaging on what I'm buying, bringing my own bags, Not using single use produce bags and using norwex in my home.

    Personal Care Switch to compostable floss
    Flossing is a hard habit to maintain for a lot of people! Does making your flossing routine more sustainable give you motivation to keep up this notoriously difficult habit?

    Have bought a reusable floss container, but still using regular floss.  the composable floss breaks and gets stuck in teeth.

      Barb, I had the same problem. I wish the compostable floss was sturdier on my sharp tooth edges. However, I tried something recently - I thought if I can reuse my toothbrush for months, why can't I rinse and reuse my floss a few times? I know this might freak some people out or make them cringe, but if I rinse it, it shouldn't be reintroducing bacteria back in my mouth. Just giving this a try!
