Sticking it to Boots for unnecessary plastic

Until a year or two ago, Boots had a simple own-brand dental stick available, made out of wood, and therefore fully compostable and biodegradable.

Then it replaced them with these plastic dental sticks. This is at the time when other large multinationals are reducing production of single-use plastic items such as cotton buds and coffee stirrers. There was a predictable online furore.

Fortunately, my local supermarket, SuperValu, now sells this range of wooden dental sticks. We will be buying these from now on. And Boots should hang their heads in shame.
