Petition Ban the sale of wet wipes that have “flushable” on the packet.
According the the BBC,“All wet wipes sold as flushable in the UK have failed the industrys disintergration test”. “Flushable” wet wipes cause 80% of blockages in sewers and cost around £100m a year.
This money could be reinvested into our ageing infrastructure and could prevent more ocean pollution
