Cheeky Wipes mission is to provide simple reusable alternatives to single-use products, and this is why we are SUPER excited to be partnering with non-profit City to Sea, with their mission to reduce plastic pollution at source.
Here in the UK a staggering 4.3 billion disposable menstrual products are used every year! Many people don’t realise that most period and incontinence pads (including Always, Bodyform and most supermarket own-brands) can contain up to 90% plastic – the equivalent of five plastic bags per pack of 14 pads. Most tampons also contain a thin layer of plastic.
What’s more, although no period products should go down the loo, it’s estimated that between 1.5 – 2 billion menstrual products are flushed down UK loos every year. Many of these items block our sewer systems and escape into our rivers and seas. Period products are now the 5th most common item found littering European beaches.
We've created a range of co-branded products to help raise funds and awareness of their fantastic work. For every one of these wetbags purchased, we’ll give £1 to City to Sea.
Single Pocket Mini Wetbag, 18.5cm wide x 14.5cm high
NOTE: we do not recommend putting very wet wipes into your bag, but if you give them a good squeeze out before putting them in the bag, it will work perfectly.
