Absolutely Not Flushable

Wipes should never be flushed down the toilet, even if the box is labeled “flushable.” Wipes do not break down as they move onto the water treatment plant, and will end up clogging their screens.

Ways to Reduce

Wash Hands When Possible

Washing your hands cleans them more effectively than wipes. Use soap and water when possible.

Use Cloth Wipes

Consider switching to reusable cloth wipes for your baby. These wipes are more eco-friendly because they can be washed and re-used.
