Here’s an easy-to-remember rule of thumb. Only flush the 3Ps: (toilet) paper, pee and poo.
On average, Scotland suffers 100 sewer blockages every day. 80 of those blockages are caused by items that weren’t meant to be flushed down the loo. As well as being harmful to nature, clearing these blockages creates energy and more harmful CO2 is released into the atmosphere.
So, what are those non-flushable items? Almost all of them are wipes. This means that simply following the 3Ps rule can actually make a huge difference.
