Join Think Before You Flush

Everyday thousands of wet wipes, cotton buds, sanitary products and other unsuitable items are flushed down toilets in Ireland instead of being put in the bin. This causes costly blockages in our homes, businesses and wastewater systems, ultimately leading to sewer overflows in our communities and plastic pollution in rivers, on beaches and in the ocean.

To help protect our communities and the environment, we want community groups to join us in creating awareness about the problem these items can cause if they are flushed down the toilet.

Here are some ways for your community group to get involved in the campaign:

  • Download some of our infographics listed below and share them with your group, local authority officials, other groups, etc.
  • Display the Dirty Dozen infographic in the public toilets in your community. We also have a bilingual Irish and English version. Request copies here.
  • Get in touch to discuss ideas on how to raise awareness of Think Before You Flush.
