1. COTTON BALLS & SWABS
They’re just cotton, right? It might seem like these tiny bathroom tools would just get soggy and eventually break down in the water pipeline, but they don’t. They eventually gather together in bends of the pipe, causing massive blockages.
2. PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION
Don’t need the rest of those pills? Many people feel like they’re doing the safe thing, keeping meds out of the wrong hands by flushing them, but it’s actually very dangerous. These drugs destroy bacteria, contaminate groundwater supplies and can have terrible effects on wildlife downstream. Check to find a place that will dispose of them properly.
3. PAPER TOWELS
Paper towels are extremely wasteful, and reusable rags/napkins are much better. However, if you do use paper towels know that they’re NOT designed to break down in the water like toilet paper. Flushing them can cause BIG problems.
