21. "A Tooth to Pick"
Do you shamelessly pick your teeth after eating? Of the various experiences and meals within F*ck, That’s Delicious to "veganize", a breakdown of the many tools that can be used to pick one's teeth (cigarette pack cellophane, NYC MetroCards, and business cards are among the craftier options Bronson mentions) is certainly one of the more puzzling to approach.
So I decided to create this short list of toothpick options; a mix of eco-friendly, sustainable, or reusable, and all vegan-friendly! We've got something for pretty much everyone, whether you're a floss pick type, a regular floss type, or prefer a pointy end.
I even included an option for plantable seed paper business cards if by chance that's the only method you'll use to remove food from between your teeth. It could also come in handy if you were looking for a unique business card option.
If you were looking for toothpicks that make your teeth and conscience feel a little cleaner than single-use options, check out this vegan-friendly list below!
1. Floss Picks
Pick on one end, floss on the other. The best part about the ones linked below are that they're made using plant-based materials, mainly cornstarch:
