What is a USDA BioBased Product Certification?
The BioBased certification program provides accreditation for products whose ingredients are sourced from renewable, biological resources. BioBased products are replacements for petroleum-based products, in the case of FlossPot’s Vegan Dental Floss it replaces plastic/nylon floss.
FlossPot is certified 100% BioBased. It should be noted while this is an American certification, FlossPot is Canadian product.
Did FlossPot pass the EORTH biodegradability test?
EORTH run non-scientific biodegradability tests in our “bio test patch”. We do this to view firsthand how long “biodegradable” and “compostable” labelled products break down. We’ve tested Patch Band Aid Strips, Compostable Straws (after many months this straw is still perfectly intact) and Bamboo Toothbrushes.
