Manufacturer of sustainable bio-based plastics Cereplast, Inc. will supply DenTek®, a leading American oral care company, with bioplastic resin for its new Natural Floss Picks, the first biodegradable/compostable floss pick on the market. Products made with Cereplast Compostables® resin are renewable, ecologically sound substitutes for petroleum-based plastic, replacing nearly all petroleum-based content with bio-based materials formulated from "building block" resins such as PLA from NatureWorks®.
Natural Floss Picks deliver the same high-quality flossing experience that is expected from DenTek floss with approximately one-third less waste. The handles are certified to be 100% compostable by the Biodegradable Plastics Institute (BPI), and the packaging is made from 100% recyclable material. Cereplast, Inc. designs and manufactures proprietary bio-based, sustainable plastics which are used as substitutes for petroleum-based plastics in all major converting processes - such as injection molding, thermoforming, blow molding and extrusions - at a pricing structure that is competitive with petroleum-based plastics.
