(Ryerson University – Faculty of Science) Testing of 101 single-use products at Ryerson University, of which 23 being labeled as ‘flushable’ by the manufacturer, demonstrated that not one single wipe was able to fall apart or disperse safely through the sewer system. These products cause an estimated $250 million in maintenance and repair costs. Moreover, none of the tested products conformed with industry guidelines for labelling.
