Toilet Training: What is “Flushable”?

plunging-toiletToilets are not trash cans. Human waste, toilet paper and water are the ONLY things you should flush down any toilet.

Unfortunately our handy-wipes culture is under-informed about the serious consequences of using the toilet as a disposal system. Waste water treatment plants are choked with the daily onslaught of personal wipes, feminine hygiene products, condoms, dental floss, hair, pet litter, syringes, plastic gloves and even toothbrushes that are blithely flushed into our sewer systems. This disastrous habit causes expensive repairs, basement flooding and raw sewage discharges into our local waterways.

Just because a manufacturer labels its product ‘flushable’ does not make it so. ‘Biodegradable’, ‘eco-friendly’ and ‘natural’ are insufficient qualifiers for flushing. Again, human waste, toilet paper and water are the ONLY things you should flush down any toilet.
