How can I reuse or recycle dental floss packaging
We’ve had an email from [Am]:
My partner and I have been wracking our brains trying to find a use for the plastic dental floss packaging. The part that holds the floss and has a little blade at the top.
I’ve looked for company websites to see if they can be returned and used to no avail!
I’ve just popped our pack open to see what the deal is with them – it flipped open really easily but I have forced it in the past during a previous curious moment. Because it flipped open easily and inside is just a spool, I guess you could refill the spool and use it for other things – but aside from cotton, I can’t think of anything else that would work. And I suspect it would be more hassle to refill the spool with cotton rather than just using it of the reel itself.
Has anyone else go any other suggestions for refilling the spool? Or other uses for the packaging?
