Leading retailers not embracing wet wipe ‘flushability’ standard
Own-brand wipes can’t carry ‘Fine to Flush’ logo because they’re unflushable, says Marine Conservation Society
The UK’s leading marine conservation charity says that own-brand ‘flushable’ wet wipes, which can be bought from 10 leading High Street retailers and supermarkets, can’t carry the ‘Fine to Flush’ logo – which denotes an official UK water industry standard identifying which wet wipes are safe to be flushed down the toilet.
These ‘flushable’ wipes are marketed under a range of descriptions – from moist toilet tissue, dispersible wipes, to toddler training wipes – but could be contributing to sewer blockages, so-called ‘fatbergs’ and marine pollution, says the Marine Conservation Society (MCS). The charity says it strongly urges the public not to buy these wipes and to choose alternatives.
