UK Government Plans To Ban Wet Wipes

Wet Wipes Saved From Oceans & Sewers: 1 401 349

CEO among finalists of global enterprise competition

Siim Saat, the director of the Estonian startup SATU Laboratory, has been selected as one of the 10 finalists in the international health care startup competition ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’. His place among the finalists was won with the startup’s marketing of the innovative Gel Wipe product, which is designed for wiping bottoms. The winners will be announced during a formal gala to be held in London the day after tomorrow.

The gel created by the Estonian is innovative for the fact that it can be used with almost any kind of toilet paper without the paper falling apart, while at the same time being both ecologically and environmentally friendly. Growth in the popularity of wet wipes for cleaning bottoms has led to extensive environmental problems to which more and more attention is being turned in the West. For example, the British newspaper The Guardian named wet wipes the greatest enemy of the environment in 2015. The product developed by the Estonian solves this problem, since the gel dissolves in water and is safe for the environment. Saat was chosen as one of the 10 finalists from a field of more than 1000 nominees from Dubai to Canada.

The winners will be announced this Saturday 17 December at a formal gala being held in London. Information about the competition can be found online at http://www.healthcarestartupsociety.com/Healthcare-Startup- Awards.php.

CNN: Spray From Toilet Could Spread Coronavirus

CNN reports: Flush carefully. Study suggests coronavirus could spread in spray from toilet

Here’s a good reason to put the lid down before you flush: a new computer modeling study shows how a flushing toilet can send a cloud of little particles containing fecal matter into the air — fecal matter that could carry coronavirus.

Combat COVID-19 with Proper Hygiene

It’s not surprising that the coronavirus has got the whole world worried and anxious. It spreads fast and can remain on surfaces for more than a week. People all over the world are scrambling to stock up on face masks, rubbing alcohol, soap, toilet paper, and other essentials.

But before you join the paranoia, understand that the coronavirus is nowhere near as contagious as the chicken pox or the measles. It’s also nowhere near as deadly as SARS, MERS, the smallpox, Ebola, and the bird flu. Hence, there’s no need to panic. Just know how to keep good full-body hygiene and be safe from the COVID-19 virus.

Stop the Crap! Clean Up with Toilet Paper Gel

£100 million is spent annually to address 300,000 sewer blockages in the UK. A 2017 study found that 93% of the materials that cause these blockages are wipes flushed down the toilet.

The same thing is happening in the US. In October 2018, Charleston Water spent $140,000 to fix damages caused by a 12-foot long clog of disposable wipes. A similar clog happened again in June 2019 and cost another $60,000.
