Sustainably Sourced Biodegradable Wipes

Biodegradable Wipes

Most people already understand the everyday benefits of using wet wipes. Because in the UK alone, we get through 11,000,000,000 (11 billion!) wipes every year. That’s an average of 163 wipes per person. But there’s a problem. 90% of those wipes currently contain plastic and plastic isn’t biodegradable. Which means plastic wipes are here forever and that’s devastating.

Plastic Wet Wipes Permanently Pollute Marine Environments!

Considering their environmental impact and the demand for countless repairs to notoriously blocked waterways that they cause.  You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to understand that we need a better alternative. Especially when the water companies pass the financial cost of cleaning up the cleaning wipes to consumers!

Hippo All Purpose Trade Wipes

Introducing 100% Biodegradable Wet Wipes

We’re excited to announce a new sustainable solution to the plastic wipe problem, with the launch of Hippo Trade Wipes made from bamboo. These all purpose wipes have all the cleaning power and bigger, better performance that you’d expect from one of our products. But, unlike most other wet wipes, they’re fully biodegradable.

Our new wipes are unique because they’re quickly compostable. Therefore, when disposed properly after use, in the right conditions your used wipes will start biodegrading after just a few months. And eventually they’ll be gone forever!
