Get your school to think before they flush

To help protect the environment, we want schools and youth groups to join us in creating awareness about the problem flushing damaging items can cause if they are flushed down the toilet. Get in touch today to request resources.

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

  • Ensure there are bins in all the toilets at your school or youth group centre.
  • Display the Think Before You Flush infographics in your bathrooms.
  • Book a Think Before You Flush workshop for your classroom


Experiment: PIPES

Flushing damaging items down the toilet leads to 1000s of blockages in our wastewater networks. With our pipes experiment, you will be able to recreate the disruption these items can cause in our wastewater network.

Experiment: WET WIPE HYPE

Did you know that 90% of wet wipes contain some form of plastic? Flushing wipes down the toilet, even those labelled “flushable”, is the leading cause of blockages & fatbergs in our sewage systems. As a result, Irish Water have to clear 2,000 blockages every month. These wipes not only damage of wastewater network but can pollute our environment.
