Virtual Earth Month – Keep Wipes out of Pipes
April 6, 2020
Have you been using more disposable sanitary and personal hygiene wipes these days? So have other people, and unfortunately, many of these wipes are ending up flushed and stuck in sewer pipes across the nation, which requires costly removal by local watershed management teams. Even wipes branded as “flushable” or “biodegradable” do not break down in sewer environments. These disposable wipes are contributing to pipe blockages, and you can help!
If you can use a reusable towel instead, please do! If you must use disposable wipes, #KeepWipesoutofPipes! Instead, place them in landfill bins and never flush them. #EarthDayEveryDay #AtHomeActivism
