With Mother’s Day around the corner, now is the time to reflect on all the reasons why we love the maternal figures in our lives. From providing sound advice to making delicious home-cooked meals, mothers deserve all the appreciation we can offer! One way you can show your thanks this Mother’s Day is by keeping the home clog free by looking for the “Do Not Flush” symbol on non-flushable wipes packaging.

Doing your part to prevent clogs does much more than just avoiding a gnarly mess in your home bathroom. Clogs create unsanitary (and costly!) conditions in your home from pipe damage and toilet leaks. No mom wants to clean that up, especially on Mother’s Day. And even if that non-flushable wipe makes it past your home’s pipes, they can damage local wastewater infrastructure by getting caught in filtration systems. The result can be nasty sewage spills contaminating the environment and potentially our drinking water.

Instead of spending Mother’s Day cleaning the bathroom, spend quality time with mom! We offer a variety of activity sheets to kids of all ages, all designed to help you practice #FlushSmart habits. Check out our enrichment materials to learn more, and always look for the “Do Not Flush” symbol on wipes packaging.
