Spain wages war on wet wipes


SPAIN is waging war on wet wipes … or, rather, the practice of flushing them down the loo.

A call by the Grupo Parlamentario Vasco to halt to the environmental damage caused by disposable wipes was unanimously approved by all parties in the Senate.

Now the government is to mount an awareness campaign highlighting the risks of throwing them to the toilet, which leads to blocked pipes and home floods and can be very costly to repair.

Besides the campaign, there will have to be a major rethink on how wipes can be relabelled to identify which are biodegradable and which are not.
