That's why our team created DuraPik, a reusable, zero-waste dental pick made from recycled, surgical-grade stainless steel that’s built to last. DuraPik even comes with a Lifetime warranty. This beautiful, timeless, ergonomic design fits right in the palm of your hand – and, when necessary, between your teeth.
We’ve combined this beautiful, durable dental pick with our organic vegan floss. Infused with peppermint essential oils and coated in organic candelilla wax, this floss is totally house-compostable and vegan-friendly.
It’s the perfect combo for anyone that wants to rid themselves of single-use plastic and take care of their oral health. What’s better than a clear conscience and a great smile?
DuraPik is an eco-conscious start-up. We’re based in Australia/Canada but have team members around the world. We are a small team of elite(…ish) eco-warriors lead by founder and head honcho Keirin Shaw.
The company’s ultimate goal is to eliminate single-use plastics. Today, we’re implementing that goal with our eponymous product, the DuraPik dental pick, and its accompanying DuraFloss dental floss. We want to give you the power to help change the world a little every time you floss.
We’re giving you the power to help change the world each time you floss. By redesigning the everyday single-use dental pick, we’ve created something much more sustainable, reusable and, dare we say, sexier… Yes, we dare. It’s something a little sexier for your night-time routine. Because saving the planet is always hot.
We donate 5% of our profits to Project Aware to help clean our oceans and another 5% to reforestation*. Being Australian, we know all too well the ramifications of clear-cut logging for our land and wildlife. We’re aiming to create a new normal where single-use plastic is a thing of the past. That’s why DuraPik’s products are 100% plastic-free and environmentally-friendly. With DuraPik, you can rest easy knowing your dental health isn’t harming the environment or our planet’s marine life. So what are you waiting for..
*Only future profits will be donated.
Oooh yeah… that’s nice.
It was important for us to consider all the functionalities of the everyday dental pick. In going from "single use" to a more durable and sustainable design, we wanted to make DuraPik eco-friendly and give it a more modern look. After intensive research and surveys, Durapik is the final result of all the work done by our team of eco-conscious engineers and designers, and our community!
