MCS ‘Wet Wipes Turn Nasty When You Flush Them’ Campaign Launched

The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) have launched their ‘wet wipes turn nasty when you flush them’ campaign to highlight the problems associated with wet wipes and to demand better labelling by retailers. During the 2015 MCS Big Beach Clean over 4,000 wet wipes were picked up around UK coastlines, a 400% rise in the past decade. When caught in drainage systems, wet wipes can contribute towards drain blockages and overspills into rivers and the sea.
