How do OLA Bamboo products have a positive effect on the environment?

Every year, more than 4.9 billion plastic toothbrushes, billions of straws and disposable plastic utensils end up in garbage dumps and various natural environments around the world. All this plastic takes about 500 years to decompose. Even when it does decompose, its chemical composition remains intact and the entire plastic substance remains in the environment for centuries longer. A lot of this plastic is found in the oceans where it is ingested by birds and fish. Approximately 90% of seabirds have ingested plastic. Bamboo is the main element used in the manufacture of the OLA Bamboo toothbrush. This 100% natural and 100% biodegradable material replaces plastic, a substance very commonly used for the manufacture of conventional toothbrushes. OLA Bamboo utensils are made of 100% birch and straws are made of 100% bamboo. Since bamboo is a plant and birch is a tree, they decompose naturally in the environment. In short, when you dispose of your OLA Bamboo toothbrush, utensils or straws, in whatever way you do so, you help eliminate unnecessary plastic in the environment by replacing it with bamboo or wood, which break down naturally.

Bamboo is the main material used in the manufacture of the OLA Bamboo toothbrush. This 100% natural and 100% compostable plant replaces plastic. Because bamboo is a tree, it decomposes naturally in the environment. By purchasing an OLA Bamboo toothbrush, you help eliminate unnecessary plastic in the environment.

What is the difference between biodegradable and compostable?

There are two categories of compostable products: those that break down in a home compost system and those that decompose in an industrial compost system (e.g. a city compost). Products described as compostable will break down naturally as they are usually made of organic materials (e.g. plants).

The term biodegradable is not always well defined. It refers to any material that will decompose in nature after a certain number of years. However, there is no clear definition of the time frame needed for a product to decompose; moreover, a product can change shape but retain its chemical composition (e.g. biodegradable plastic bags).

What is OLA Bamboo floss made of?

OLA Bamboo biodegradable dental floss is made from mulberry floss, so there is no plastic in this natural product. The waxing is also natural. It is candelilla wax, which comes from a shrub. This vegan wax is often used in cosmetics and the pharmaceutical industry. The mint taste is due to the addition of mint essential oil. Moreover, the floss container is a small recyclable cardboard box; only the miniature metal knife should be put in the garbage.

Is the OLA Bamboo brand involved in its community?

Yes! The OLA Bamboo brand is owned by the Canadian company OLA Bamboo Inc., based in Quebec. This new company currently employs three people and aims to increase this number soon. In addition to job creation, our company is involved in and supports various environmental initiatives. Part of the sales of each OLA Bamboo toothbrush is used to plant trees in Quebec with CO2 Compensation. So far, nearly 2000 trees have been planted thanks to you.

Does OLA Bamboo floss contains Plastic?
No, it is 100% natural floss containing no plastic.

Is there biodegradable dental floss?
OLA Bamboo floss is biodegradable and the packaging is also recyclable.

  1. Aimée

    La meilleure que j’ai trouvé. Le contenant en carton est très pratique et très rigide, donc nous pouvons le transporter. Je préfère votre emballage que les tubes en vitres.

  2. Gilbert

    La soie dentaire est très efficace et fonctionne très bien. Certaines autres marques naturelles se brisent facilement, mais pas la vôtre. Félicitations

  3. ÉVELYNE

    Concept intéressant. Ne goûte pas trop la menthe, donc c’est parfait pour moi.

  4. Connor

    Finally got what I was looking for. It is natural, works well and better than the regular floss.

  5. Sylvie Lemelin

    Votre soie dentaire est assez mince pour convenir à une dentition serrée comme la mienne et assez résistante aussi! Merci!

  6. Ted

    Floss is amazing, works well and doesn’t break easily like other natural floss brands.

  7. Brian

    Floss is great but I am also impressed by the great packaging. The cardboard is strong and it’s good to know it is recyclable.

  8. Marie-P.

    J’ai trouvé ce produit en vente à la pharmacie de mon quartier. J’adore cette soie dentaire. Elle n’est pas trop épaisse, elle glisse bien entre les dents, ne laisse pas une impression d’avoir des filaments pris et le comble, c’est écologique, même dans l’emballage. Vraiment contente de cette découverte!

    • Vicky Jodry

      Merci Marie-Pascale!

  9. Aaron

    I am very picky about floss but this one meets all my criteria. Doesn’t get stuck between the tight spaces in my teeth. Highly recommended.

  10. Clark

    Nice product, adequate mint flavor so perfect for me.

  11. Alden

    Happy to find a functional biodegradable product. Holds up nice.

  12. Laurie Croteau

    Malheureusement, elle s’effrite contre mes dents et casse en deux durant que je passe la soie. La dernière fois, un bout de soie est resté coincé entre deux dents et ça m’a pris un 10 minutes pour la sortir de là. Je suis déçu par le produit, car je voulais être un peu plus zéro déchet. J’ai jeté le reste du produit, car ce n’étais pas là première fois que ça restait coincé.

    • Vicky Jodry

      Bonjour,
      La soie naturelle est un peu moins solide que de la soie en plastique. Il se peut donc qu’elle casse avec des dents très serrées. Nous sommes désolés de ce désagrément.

  13. Mitchell

    Loved the floss and the recyclable cardboard packaging. It’s not that strong but it is biodegradable so worth it.

  14. Winnie

    Making a switch to green lifestyle and thought of buying an earth-friendly option. I don’t find any issues so far…. worth the price.

  15. Leroy

    La soie dentaire nettoie bien. Le fil peut se briser sur les dents serrés, mais c’est bien sachant que c’est bon pour la planète.

  16. Katelyn

    THIS PRODUCT IS NOT VEGAN. Despite this page advertising the floss as “vegan waxed”, when I received it the packaging states that this is a silk floss. Nowhere on this page is silk mentioned. Product advertising is deceptive and I will not be purchasing anything from this company ever again.

    • Vicky Jodry

      Hello Katelyn,
      Thank you for your comment. It’s a translation mistake and we are really sorry about that. Indeed, you should read in the fist line of product’s description that it is made of natural silk. It’ll be correct as soon as possible.
      We never wanted to misinformed anyone. The packaging was modified to take out the vegan wax mention in the front, we realized that is was confusing. The was is vegan, but the floss is made of natural silk, which isn’t.
      Again, we are sorry about that and we wish you a nice day

  17. Akira Currier

    I want so badly to love this floss. The flavour is good, it cleans well, and is eco-friendly. Unfortunately, the floss breaks every time I use it, without fail. I’ve never had this issue with other flosses. Make it stronger and it will be perfect.

    • Vicky Jodry

      Hello Akira,
      Thanks for your comment. Natural silk can be less strong than plactic floss… Unfortunately it could break between tight teeth..

  18. Quincy

    Je voulais un fil dentaire biodégradable depuis longtemps et j’ai trouvé celui-ci. Meilleur que les autres que j’ai utilisés jusqu’à présent.

  19. Isabelle

    Je trouve cette soie dentaire exceptionnelle! J’ai essayé plusieurs autres marques et elles cassaient toutes entre mes dents, des bouts de fil dentaire y demeurant coincés et étant difficilement enlevables. Mais pas avec celle-ci! 😀 J’ai pourtant les dents très serrées, et cette soie fonctionne parfaitement! Je la recommande avec vigueur!
