Disposable face wipes are not just wasteful and expensive (and usually sold in plastic packaging), but also one of the most common causes of blocked toilets and drains. If you use them, dispose of them in the bin (never flush them down the toilet) to avoid a big plumber’s bill (blocked drains can also cause local flooding).
These organic cotton rainbow wipes are sold in a set of five with a bright fun design, and also good for baby wipe alternatives. Printed with soft organic jersey cotton, you can cut up and compost at end of life (use with biodegradable beauty cleansers). Also in a meadow pattern.
Organic cotton is a little more expensive, but lasts longer, as the fibres have not been treated with chemicals. 25% of all the world’s pesticides are used for the cotton industry, so by choosing organic versions, you help to protect the land, sea, wildlife and the health of farmers who grow the cotton (often they have to wear protective clothing when handling chemicals, in very hot climates).
