Outback Organics changes to Earth friendly wipes

We are continuing to make environmentally friendly changes to our products, manufacturing and packaging in an effort to become a more sustainable company.

Earth friendly wipes

The latest swap we have made are biodegradable intimate wipes and wet wipes. We have opted for a less environmentally harmful option by making all our wipes biodegradable. The wipes will break down naturally once disposed of and can even be composted.

Formulated with no harsh chemicals, Outback Organics intimate wipes are infused with chamomile and aloe vera which are gentle on the skin and are perfect for intimate and sensitive areas. Our Outback wet wipes now have a citrus and ‘lemony’ aroma in line with our new lemon myrtle range. Lemon myrtle has powerful antimicrobial properties and is a natural antiseptic which lends itself to being an excellent active ingredient within skin care products. Our wet wipes come in a pack of 25 and will be available to purchase soon.

Why are wet wipes so bad for our environment?

Wet wipes, baby wipes and cleansing wipes have a massive detrimental impact on the environment and wildlife habitats along with other issues such as one of the main causes of ‘fatbergs’ once flushed down the toilet. Flushing wipes down the toilet is never recommended, even flushable wipes still remain a big problem when it comes to our waterways and sewer blockages.

As well as being harmful to our environment and causing major sewer blockages, wet wipes are also changing our riverbeds. Even before the wipes reach our seas, they are causing havoc in our rivers and canals. Wipes drift to the bottom of the bed, getting clogged with mud, sticks and other debris, forming part of the riverbed often misleading the human eye into looking natural and it has been reported that they are changing the shape of some riverbeds. Once the wipe has eventually reached our seas and oceans, they get ingested by sea creatures, such as turtles, who mistake them for jellyfish and ultimately die from the unnatural substance.

This is why we, at Outback Organics, believe it is so important to focus on what we can change and improve, whatever that may be, big or small. We are very happy to be able to offer our customers environmentally and earth friendly alternatives which will help towards the sustainability of our future.
