Unblocktober is the world’s first month-long national campaign and awareness month to improve the health of our drains, sewers, watercourses and seas – driven completely by the British public.
Do you want to help reduce the amount of plastic entering our seas and rivers? Do you want to help fight environmentally-damaging fatbergs? Well, it’s easier than you think. Through Unblocktober, you can make small changes to your habits and the way you dispose of certain everyday items in order to make big changes to the environment – at a time when it needs our help more than ever. It’s easy – so come and join us in making October… Unblocktober!
£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.
Diarrhea is more frequent and more liquid bowel movements than normal. There are many causes of diarrhea, including food intolerance, viral and bacterial infections, as well as parasites, intestinal disorders or diseases (like irritable bowel syndrome) and reactions to medications.
3 Reasons to Use Toilet Paper Gel Instead of Foam, Spray or Flushable Wipes
1. CLEANS PORES BETTER. While dry toilet paper gets most of the fecal matter when you wipe, your skin still remains dirty. But when you add gel to your regular toilet paper, the combination helps clean better and reduces the risks of spreading fecal matter to underwear. Compared to foams and liquid sprays – gels are designed for deep cleansing and are especially good for unclogging pores while removing bacteria from the surface of your skin.
