We are an Australian Company based in Queensland. Early on we recognized the environmental disaster disposable wet wipes purposed and set about providing an alternative. 10 years later we are proved right with reports of wet wipes are clogging sewers and washing up on beaches around the world.
While it is undoubtedly preferable to throw wet wipes into the garbage, as opposed to the toilet, it is important to note that because they are not biodegradable, they are not good for the environment on any level. The synthetic type of towelettes will take 300-500 years to disintegrate. Until then, they will simply sit in landfills.
UK's Beaches are becoming increasingly littered with wet wipes that people are flushing down the toilet. A relentless tide of wet wipes is blighting Britain’s beaches and threatening wildlife, part of a record level of rubbish along the coastline, according to a new report released by the Marine Conservation Society.
Not to mention the human toll !!
A preservative called "methylisothiazolinone" (MI) that’s widely used to keep bacteria at bay in pre-moistened wipes is being blamed for a dramatic increase in cases of contact dermatitis.
