The Silent Threat: Wet Wipes and Their Environmental Impact on Landfills

In todays paced world convenience often takes precedence over sustainability leading to impacts, on our environment. Lets consider wipes as an example – they have become a household item offering quick and easy cleanup. However what many people overlook is the strain they put on our landfills. In this blog post we will delve into how wet wipes affect the environment when disposed of on ground and emphasize the importance of shifting towards eco options like Tushé.

While wet wipes are designed for use their convenience comes at an environmental cost. Unlike toilet paper that breaks down quickly when flushed wet wipes contain materials that can persist in landfills for than a century. This accumulation of biodegradable waste exacerbates the burden on our waste management systems.

Once wet wipes end up in landfills they start to decompose, releasing substances and toxins into the environment. This decomposition process leads to leachate formation as moisture permeates through the landfill due to rainwater and other sources carrying dissolved contaminants with it. The presence of wipes in landfills increases the concentration of pollutants, in leachate posing risks to soil and groundwater quality.

As disposable wipes disintegrate they release plastic particles known as microplastics. These microplastics remain in the environment for a period posing a danger, to animals and ecosystems. In waste sites the buildup of microplastics from wipes leads to soil pollution and disrupts habitats. Additionally these tiny particles can leach substances into the surroundings exacerbating the effects of wipes on waste sites.
