About Biodegradable Soft Wipes (100% Bamboo)
Not only is plastic waste a major source of landfill, but it also releases toxic chemicals into the environment if incinerated. The basic test to demonstrate the plastic content of wipes is the burn test. Plastic sheeting emits toxic black fumes of dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls (BCPs) and other toxic particles, while plant-based wipes emit most of the carbon and water and burn cleanly without leaving a black residue .
Made mostly of viscose, polyester or a blend of the two, non-biodegradable wipes are one of the largest contributors of microplastics in our oceans, contributing hundreds of thousands of tons of plastic waste to landfills every year. As a result, many consumers are looking for plant-based alternatives to plastic-based wipes.
Our biodegradable soft wipes (100% Bamboo) are mechanically treated, not chemically treated. Using 100% natural fibers means they're biodegradable, while oil-based plastics won't break down.
