Zero-Waste Dental Flossers

The 'DuraPik' Reusable Dental Pick is Made with Recycled Materials

— July 23, 2020 — Eco
Dental floss and flossers are notorious for being a single-use item that can quickly stack up when it comes to being wasteful, so the 'DuraPik' reusable dental pick has been created as an eco-friendly alternative. The flosser is crafted with recycled surgical-grade stainless steel to ensure the utmost attention to cleanliness, while also making it a more sustainable option when compared to plastic versions. The pick is easily cleaned between uses and is even dishwasher-safe to encourage users to keep it sterile.

The 'DuraPik' reusable dental pick comes with DuraFloss, which is crafted from organic bamboo along with an organic candelilla wax coating and an organic peppermint oil infusion. This helps to eliminate the need for conventional floss that often features a plastic construction.
Trend Themes
1. Eco-friendly Dental Care - Developing reusable and sustainable dental care products as an alternative to single-use items, like the 'DuraPik' reusable dental pick made with recycled materials.
2. Recycled Surgical-grade Stainless Steel - Utilizing recycled surgical-grade stainless steel in the production of dental tools to promote cleanliness and sustainability, such as the 'DuraPik' reusable dental pick.
3. Organic and Sustainable Flossing - Creating organic and sustainable floss options, like the DuraFloss made from organic bamboo, candelilla wax coating, and peppermint oil infusion, to reduce the environmental impact of traditional flossing methods.
Industry Implications
1. Eco-friendly Dental Products - Opportunity for companies to develop and market eco-friendly dental products, focusing on sustainability and reusability.
2. Recycled Materials Manufacturing - Manufacturers can explore the use of recycled materials, particularly surgical-grade stainless steel, in the production of dental tools and instruments.
3. Organic Oral Care - Companies specializing in organic and sustainable oral care products can innovate by creating floss options that are free from plastic and made from natural materials like bamboo and organic coatings.
