The industry-agreed deadline for implementation of the ‘Do Not Flush logo’ is October 30th 2018. Whilst the Code of Practice is not a legal requirement and is voluntary in nature, Nice-Pak fully supports the initiative and is actively encouraging all customers to adopt its recommendations for two good reasons.
Firstly, in simple terms we believe it is the right thing to do for the environment. The vast majority of wipes produced in our factories on your behalf are not designed to be flushed and it is our joint responsibility to make sure that the consumer understands this.
Secondly, it is in the interest of our customers to avoid reputational damage. Nice-Pak expects an increase in scrutiny of non-compliant products after the deadline has passed. We strongly urge all customers who have hesitated on this point to date to review their positions.
