"Flushable" wet wipes aren't actually flushable, and that's bad for the environment and city sewage systems. Here are some facts that you may not know about those so-called flushable wipes:
- Flushable wipes are 1/3 plastic which ends up in the ocean as microplastics.
- Marine life eats these plastics harming their health and our seafood.
- Wet wipes don't break down in your toilet or pipes.
- They collect to create "giant fatbergs" that clog city sewage systems.
- According to the New York Times, New York City has spent $18 Million on wet wipe related issues since 2010 (this is from 2015!).
So what can you do to fight back against big toilet paper and flushable wet wipe lies?
Use a bidet!
Bidets clean our butt with water which won't clog and is better for the environment.
Don't have space for a bidet? Ya you do! With Tushy, our bidets clip onto any standard toilet so anyone can switch from wet wipes to a bidet.
