Wet wipes are every Mum’s hero weapons against daily parenting tasks. These handy inventions can be used to clean up messy mouths, sticky hands and help with nappy changes plus clean surfaces for that extra squeaky clean feeling. The UK love their wet wipes, they spend more than £500 million a year on wipes of all kinds, used for everything from cleaning our kitchens to cleaning our babies bums.

Though they can be convenient, wet wipes are quite problematic for the planet. We’re all guilty of reaching for a wet wipe as an easy solution for cleaning up messes, but that split second decision has a long lasting effect on the rest of the planet for years to come.

How can you help?

A statement released by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), said wet wipes are among the most ‘avoidable plastic waste’ and we agree! There are so many options that are kinder to the environment and skin compared to standard wet wipes that hopefully we can soon see a world with less or no wet wipes! The environment, and your wallet will thank you for it. Wet wipes are pricey items that you are literally flushing down the drain. Opting for eco reusable alternatives will help you save the pennies as well as the planet.
