The Truth About "Flushable" Wet Wipes
29 Sep, 2016
"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!).
