I've got some great news! Check out this new official logo to identify wet wipes that can be flushed down the toilet.
The “Fine to Flush” logo will appear on products that have passed rigorous scientific testing to show they break up in the sewers and prevent the evil Fatty McFatberg from rearing its ugly head!
Despite many wet wipes being labelled flushable, this is often not the case so some people unwittingly put them in the toilet, leading to giant fatbergs developing underground which are expensive to clear and can have a devastating impact on the environment.
As you might’ve heard, each year Thames Water clear 75,000 blockages and wet wipes are a major contributing factor.
The “Fine to Flush” logo will give you the greenlight that it’s ok to flush the wet wipe down the toilet.
If there’s no logo, you know where those wet wipes belong? You guessed it… in the BIN! These particular wet wipes contain plastic, which makes it hard for it to break a part.
The “Fine to Flush” standard must be plastic free; we’ll keep you updated on which manufacturers will be taking this on.
