Last night I finished a roll of floss and realized how easy it would be to just put a new roll in the same plastic dispenser. Instead, the dispenser was trash or maybe recycling. (Can it be recycled with the metal piece attached?) We can buy tape refills for tape dispensers, why can't we buy floss refills for a floss dispenser? According to an article published in the Journal Science, about 8 million metric tons of plastic are thrown into the ocean annually (1). Therefore, we must all find ways to reduce the amount of plastic including the dental industry.
